ASN received the commissioning authorisation application1 and the partial commissioning authorisation application for the Flamanville 3 reactor submitted by EDF. Article L. 593-11 of the Environment Code effectively stipulates that ASN shall make the authorisation decision under the conditions defined by the decree of 2nd November 20072.
The commissioning authorisation application submitted by EDF includes more specifically the safety report of the installation and its general operating rules. ASN, assisted by IRSN, has carried out a preliminary review of this application to check that it contains all the documents required by the regulations and the necessary information to allow a full technical examination.
On completion of this review, ASN considers that the file submitted by EDF must be supplemented to allow the technical examination to be carried out. ASN informed EDF of its conclusions by letter dated 12th June 2015 and drew up a list of the complements, corrections and justifications required for the various documents constituting the commissioning authorisation application file.
