Senators Stress Need for Efficient NRC Oversight of Reactor Construction

Two U.S. senators who help oversee the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission are urging Chairman Stephen Burns to ensure that the agency has the resources needed for “complete and timely” review of reports verifying construction milestones at new nuclear plants. With four reactors entering the final building phase in Georgia and South Carolina, the NRC will face a surge in documentation requiring review.

   I wonder how this will impact the total process, I know it is suppose to streamline the process for future reactors but it seems it could delay construction. Will it accelerate the startup process?

"Southern Co.’s Vogtle 3 and 4 and SCANA Corp.’s V.C. Summer 2 and 3 are the first reactors being built using the NRC’s combined construction and operating licensing process under 10 CFR Part 52 and will be the first to implement license provisions known as “ITAAC”—inspections, tests, analyses and acceptance criteria."

At our site (Summer), the resident inspectors are constantly reviewing data associated with our ITAACs.  We also have an oversight group solely devoted to ITAAC.  It isn't going to be final hour review of every single one of the ITAACs, the process is on-going and continuous.
