JER: early discussions with 6 regulators

Launched in 2022 by EDF, the Joint Early Review is an innovative initiative consisting of a joint pre-assessment of NUWARD SMR. Initially conducted by three safety authorities, this joint review is now being carried out by six European regulators and their technical support staff. These discussions, conducted upstream and outside any formal licensing process, are essential. They enable us to better anticipate the expectations of countries in terms of design choices, so as to have a standardized plant that can be exported to Europe.

A strong backing of the French Government

In October 2021 President Macron announced significant financial and political support for NUWARD as part of the « France 2030 » plan to develop innovative small-scale nuclear reactors in France.
