The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has released for public consultation a draft of regulatory document RD-367, Design of Small Reactors.
RD-367 provides applicants with the design requirements for new small reactors. The document identifies the overall safety objectives to be achieved, key safety concepts - such as the principle of defence-in-depth, and the consideration of multiple physical barriers - and other important engineering principles. System-specific requirements are also described. Recognizing that some requirements may not be relevant to all types of facilities, the document includes an explanation of the graded approach.
