Description

In Belgium, the research center SCK•CEN is planning to build a lead alloy-cooled fast reactor as part of an ADS facility. And Whilst the Belgian Regulator, i.e. the Federal Agency for Nuclear Control - FANC, has experience with the licensing and control of PWRs, there was little to no experience with these less-common innovative reactor types. For this reason a prelicensing project was launched. The scope, the method and the goal of this prelicensing project is presented from the point of view of the regulator.
