The NRC clarifies that a final decision has not yet been made, in “One step closer to the AP1000 finish line”

One step closer to the AP1000 finish line.

I don’t know if this was in reaction to the avalanche of news items about Westinghouse’s press release reporting that it had received news from the NRC that it will be issuing its Final Safety Evaluation Report (FSER) this week or not.  Some of the news stories made it sound as though the approval was already in hand, or at least a sure thing.

The NRC blog post explains a bit about the rest of the licensing process.  I know I find it very confusing at times.  But the bottom line is that there are still months to go before a decision is made.

Good to hear this, as the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards is holding a meeting on the AP1000 design next Tuesday, and I’ve been working hard on a short presentation for it!

. . . except . . . what does the NRC’s use of the metaphor about a “finish line” imply?  Hmmm. . .
