The IAEA Department of Nuclear Safety and Security (with involvement from the IAEA Department of Nuclear Energy) has completed a high-level mapping of applicability of the IAEA safety standards to Novel Advanced Reactors (NARs) including Small Modular Reactors (SMRs), high temperature gas cooled reactors (HTGR), sodium fast reactors (SFR), lead fast reactors (LFR), molten salt reactors (MSR), marine based SMRs and micro reactors.


The objective of this effort is to inform interested stakeholders on the results of this review, focusing on the Design Safety Standards.

The purpose of this IAEA webinar is to:

  • Provide an overview to interested stakeholders from industry and regulatory bodies of the outcomes of the review of applicability of IAEA Safety Standards to NARs, with focus on the design safety.
  • Provide an overview of the activities that the IAEA has planned to address the findings of the review and produce additional guidance where needed.
