THE NRC’S REACTOR LICENSING PROCESS: AN OVERVIEW Every atomic power reactor is licensed by the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). By law, the licensing process is open to public participation. In reality, the process is deliberately designed to be difficult to understand and to discourage effective public involvement. When nuclear plants draw water from natural water sources, fish and other wildlife get caught in the cooling system water intake structures. While this is an issue for all power plants with water-cooled systems, a study completed in in Southern California indicates that the problem is more acute for nuclear facilities. Licensing of nuclear installations is a process and includes various stages, interactions with stakeholders including the public but also the applicant. Introduction The NNR is mandated by the National Nuclear Regulator Act, (Act No 47 of ) [1] to regulate nuclear installations and nuclear related activities in South Africa. customer concept (design, process, contractors, assistance coordination), modification process, management system, procedure for controlling that NPP remains within limits, for anticipated operational occurrences for emergency response, etc. Licensing Process DSFile Size: KB.

Water Treatment Soften, Dis infect and Filter. Your water is treated through three main processes, lime softening, ozone disinfection and activated carbon filtration. Lime softening is the process of adding lime to the water, which causes a chemical reaction to remove excess calcium and magnesium. Disinfection is the process of destroying harmufl bacteria.

  The NRC licenses all commercially owned nuclear power plants that produce electricity in the United States. After the initial license is granted, the license may be amended, renewed, transferred, or otherwise modified, depending on activities that affect the reactor during its operating life.

In order for a commercial nuclear power plant to operate in the United States, it has to obtain a license from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). Among other things, the NRC is responsible for licensing and regulating the operation of nuclear power plants. In the past five decades, the NRC (formed in ).
