This paper provides an overview of the ongoing activities in the UK to understand the possible needs and development opportunities for design codes, standards and assessment procedures when looking at Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) and Generation (Gen) IV reactors. The project (at the time of the conference) is progressing towards the completion of the initial gaps analysis phase of the work. This project is also part of a wider programme of work being supported by the Innovate UK to consider other pertinent aspects such as materials, automated manufacturing, large-scale manufacture and assembly and modularised build. This paper summarises these activities and the findings to-date.
