T3 Non-Proliferation Considerations for the Export of Advanced Reactors
The goal of the panel will be to provide potential considerations and actions that the U.S. nuclear industry can take to prepare for the export of advanced reactors. The panel will highlight what U.S. exporters of advanced reactors should consider from a non-proliferation perspective before deployment of their technologies, such as safeguards and security by design and the legal requirements for exports stemming from the Atomic Energy Act. The panel objective is to highlight the necessary elements to satisfy U.S. and international export controls advanced reactors facilities and their associated materials. The panel consists of U.S. Government officials representing the Department of Energy (DOE), and Department of State (DOS), a representative from the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) and a representative from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). NEI will highlight current proliferation-resistant advanced reactor designs. DOS will provide comments on the legal framework for the supply of nuclear commodities and the non-proliferation elements that make up an agreement for civil nuclear cooperation. The Department of Energy will highlight safeguards by design and security by design efforts in the United States to address non-proliferation and security risks posed by advanced and small modular reactor designs. Finally, the IAEA will describe international efforts to prepare for the deployment of advanced reactors, including the process to ensure that a particular reactor design is safeguardable. The panel will conclude with a discussion on the benefits of taking non-proliferation criteria into consideration when approaching new reactor designs.
