NRIC Tech Talk: Pre-application Process with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission
May 26, 2021, 10-11 am MST
This webinar will focus on topical reports, meetings, audits, and white papers.
Future regulatory sessions in this series will include:
Discussion of NRC’s limited work authorizations, which include preconstruction, NRC-authorized construction, and safety evaluation.
Adrian Muñiz is currently a licensing project manager in the Division of Advanced Reactor and Non-Power Production and Utilization Facilities in the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation (NRR). Muñiz joined the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission in 2003 as a project engineer in NRR’s Licensing Project Management Division. After obtaining his licensing project manager qualification, he served as the project manager for several operating nuclear power plants. In 2007, he joined the Office of New Reactors. While there, he served as the lead project manager for the reviews of the Fermi 3 combined license application (COLA) and the Advanced Boiling Water Reactor Design certification renewal.
Past Events & Webinars
Tech Talk: STAND Tool - January 26, 2022
Watch this webinar recording and learn more about the Siting Tool for Advanced Nuclear Development (STAND), a user-friendly decision tool that supports current and emerging advanced nuclear companies in locating potential host communities. STAND’s expansive data sets go beyond traditional proximity and safety siting data to also include socioeconomic data at the community level, which will help your team facilitate and accelerate the siting process.
Tech Talk: Enveloping Advanced Reactors to Streamline Environmental Analysis - August 12th, 2021
The NRIC Plant Parameter Envelope uses a bounding approach to efficiently analyze environmental impacts of reactor siting, construction, and operation. PNNL’s team developed parameters for the reactor plant and site, encompassing a wide array of potential designs and footprints. Learn more by watching this webinar recording.
Tech Talk: Construction Activities with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission webinar - July 6, 2021
This webinar built on NRIC’s previous Tech Talks with NRC experts. In this session, presenters explained differences between a Limited Work Authorization (LWA) versus “pre-construction” activities, and the process for obtaining an LWA as part of a Combined License Application or Early Site Permit.
Tech Talk: Pre-application Process with the NRC webinar -May 26, 2021
This webinar focused on topical reports, meetings, audits, and white papers for the pre-application process with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Adrian Muñiz, licensing project manager in the Division of Advanced Reactor and Non-Power Production and Utilization Facilities in the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation (NRR) presented.
Tech Talk: Environmental Reviews with the NRC webinar - April 20, 2021
What Inspires Us: an Interactive Webinar on Nuclear Narratives - March 23, 2021
Inspiring others to understand the benefits of nuclear energy involves more than just laying out the facts. Thoughtful and personal storytelling bridges gaps between inspired individuals early in their careers and those who are unfamiliar with the field. Telling our personal stories and motivations for working in nuclear creates common ground. Human stories are our strongest tools when speaking to the public.
Tech Talk: Digital Engineering - February 16, 2021
What Inspires Us: Advanced Reactor Demonstrations - Jan. 7, 2021
This 90-minute webinar, “What Inspires Us: Advanced Reactor Demonstrations,” is moderated by Ashley Finan, director of the National Reactor Innovation Center. It features Chris Levesque, president and chief executive officer of TerraPower, and Clay Sell, chief executive officer of X-energy. During this webinar they talk about their advanced reactor designs, which were awarded federal assistance under the U.S. Department of Energy Advanced Reactor Demonstration Program. Opening remarks are offered by Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson.
