BEIS 1st May 2021 read more »
The UK government has opened the Generic Design Assessment (GDA) to Advanced Nuclear Technologies. GDA allows the UK’s independent nuclear regulators to assess the safety, security, and environmental implications of new reactor designs and to provide the confidence that these new designs are capable of meeting the UK’s statutory regulatory requirements. This guidance is for anyone submitting a nuclear power plant design for GDA (a Requesting Party). It tells you the information required by the government and the regulators to assess a Requesting Party’s readiness to enter the GDA. The entry process is an open and ongoing process. Requesting Parties are invited to apply when they assess themselves ready for GDA. The government welcomes applications from all Advanced Nuclear Technology providers seeking to progress advanced nuclear projects in the UK.

As regulators of the nuclear industry, the Environment Agency and the Office for Nuclear Regulation are working together to make sure that any new nuclear power stations built in the UK meet high standards of safety, security, environmental protection and waste management. We are scrutinising new nuclear power station designs thoroughly, making sure people and the environment are properly protected. Generic design assessment (GDA) is the first step in this process.
