Statement on Proposed Advanced Reactor Licensing Framework

U.S. Senator Tom Carper, Chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, recently announced the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s (NRC) decision to publish a proposed rule and draft guidance for the licensing process of commercial nuclear power plants, known as the Part 53 rulemaking.

Senator Carper expressed his satisfaction with the NRC’s improvements to the proposed rule, highlighting the support for the next generation of nuclear reactors. He commended the Commission for their work and public engagement that led to this rulemaking, noting that they are ahead of schedule with the announcement.

As Chair of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, Senator Carper reiterated his commitment to advancing safe, clean, and American-made advanced nuclear energy. He mentioned working towards getting the ADVANCE Act to the President’s desk to further support this goal.

The Nuclear Energy Innovation and Modernization Act (NEIMA) of 2019, supported by Senator Carper, mandated the NRC to establish a regulatory framework for advanced nuclear technologies. Following the release of the draft proposed Part 53 rule last year, Senator Carper and other lawmakers urged the NRC to review and enhance the licensing framework to align with Congressional intent.

In conclusion, Senator Carper’s efforts aim to promote the development of advanced nuclear technologies in the United States, emphasizing safety, cleanliness, and innovation in the nuclear energy sector.
