If you have a question about this talk, please contact Jo Boyle.

To construct and operate a new reactor in the UK, an operator must apply for and receive a site license. Prior to this, it is usual for the reactor design to undergo the UK Generic Design Assessment (GDA) procedure, which is site independent. This has helped enable the standardization of the designs prior to the site specific stage and has the objective of helping to avoid unanticipated delays during the construction phase. An overview of the GDA process is presented along with the status of the relevant new build designs within this process. The applicability of the licensing procedure to novel reactor designs is discussed.
