NuScale small modular reactor (SMR) standard design under subpart E, 
``Standard Design Approvals,'' of title 10 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations (10 CFR) part 52, ``Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals 
for Nuclear Power Plants.'' This SDA allows the NuScale SMR standard 
design to be referenced in an application for a construction permit or 
operating license under 10 CFR part 50, ``Domestic Licensing of 
Production and Utilization Facilities,'' or an application for a 
combined license or manufacturing license under 10 CFR part 52. In

(ADAMS Package Accession No. ML20023A318) that supports issuance of the 
SDA.
    Issuance of this SDA signifies completion of the NRC staff's 
technical review of the NuScale SMR design. The NRC staff performed its 
technical review of the NuScale SMR design control document in 
accordance with the standards for review of standard design approval 
applications set forth in 10 CFR 52.139, ``Standards for Review of 
Applications.''
    On the basis of its evaluation and independent analyses, as 
described in the FSER, the NRC staff concludes that NuScale's 
application for standard design approval meets the applicable portions 
of 10 CFR 52.137, ``Content of Applications; Technical Information,''
