APR1400 Working Group (APR1400WG)

The MDEP APR1400 Working Group (APR1400WG) was approved by the MDEP Policy Group in May 2012. The group's work is focused on the safety reviews of KHNP's APR-1400 design.

The national regulatory authorities participating in the APR1400WG include:

  • Republic of Korea
  • United Arab Emirates
  • United States

The APR1400WG's main objectives are as follows:

  • to leverage resources and ensure that the APR-1400 design reviews remain safety-focused;
  • to exchange information about their safety reviews in the areas of Fukushima lessons learned enhancements, long term cooling, digital I&C, construction oversight, probabilistic safety assessment and severe accidents, taking into account design differences among countries and differences in licensing processes.

The APR1400WG reports its status to the MDEP Steering Technical Committee (STC) at the latter's thrice annually meetings.

MDEP APR1400WG's main stakeholders include:

  • KHNP and KEPCO E&C, Republic of Korea
