REGDOC-1.1.5, Supplemental Information for Small Modular Reactor Proponents, provides information about CNSC safety and control areas as they apply to a licence application for an SMR facility. REGDOC-1.1.5 provides information that is additional to the licensing process documented in REGDOC-3.5.1, Licensing Process for Class I Nuclear Facilities and Uranium Mines and Mills, which provides an overview of the licensing process for Class I nuclear facilities.

In accordance with CNSC regulations, the CNSC has developed licence application guides that set out requirements and guidance for submitting a formal application to the CNSC to obtain a licence for reactor facilities, including SMRs, in Canada. The licence application guides also help identify information that should be included in an application. REGDOC-1.1.5 is intended to be used in conjunction with the following three licence application guides:

  • REGDOC-1.1.1, Site Evaluation and Site Preparation for New Reactor Facilities
  • REGDOC-1.1.2, Licence Application Guide: Licence to Construct a Nuclear Power Plant
  • REGDOC-1.1.3, Licence Application Guide: Licence to Operate a Nuclear Power Plant
