NuScale Power is seeking talented Nuclear Engineers to develop an 
Emergency Planning and Preparedness Framework for Small Modular 
Reactors, based on SECY-11-0152.

This paper discusses the staff's intent to develop a 
technology-neutral, dose-based, consequence-oriented emergency 
preparedness (EP) framework for SMR sites that takes into account the 
various designs, modularity and collocation, as well as the size of 
the emergency planning zone (EPZ). Work dating to 1978 established 
the basis for the current plume exposure pathway EPZ (of about 10 
miles) and an ingestion exposure pathway EPZ (of about 50 miles) for 
large light-water reactors (LWRs). As the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory 
Commission (NRC) codified these EPZ definitions, a clarification was 
included noting that the size of the EPZ could also be determined on 
a case-by-case basis for gas cooled nuclear reactors and for reactors 
with an authorized power level less than 250 megawatts thermal (MWt).
