WNA Survey on Nuclear New Build and Licensing/Permitting

(Working Groups, Member Companies) Permanent link

Two WNA Working Groups – Nuclear Law & Contracting and CORDEL – are cooperating to identify best practises in licensing and permitting for nuclear new build. The Joint Task Force on Licensing & Permitting has devised a survey to collect industry views on the relationship between nuclear new build projects and licensing/permitting processes. The survey focuses on the interaction between regulatory processes and the industry's commercial activities relating to new build, such as scheduling, procurement, contracting and finance. 

WNA will be providing further details about this survey to our member company principle representatives. If you are involved in nuclear new build projects – whether from the vantage of a utility, supplier, advisor, financier, or otherwise – we would welcome your participation in this survey and your perspective and insight as we seek to streamline the new build process. If you are interested in participating in the survey, please contact
