World Nuclear News reported that Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy’s UK Advanced Boiling Water Reactor has moved into the final assessment step of the Generic Design Assessment (GDA) process.
As quoted in the market news:

The GDA process for the UK ABWR is on schedule for completion by the end of 2017.
Horizon plans to deploy the UK ABWR at two sites – Wylfa Newydd on the Isle of Anglesey and Oldbury-on-Severn in South Gloucestershire.
The Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) announced on 30 October it had completed Step 3 of the GDA process of the design. This stage looked at the safety and security arguments Hitachi-GE presented to underpin the safety and security claims.
Jane Bowie, ONR’s Head of GDA said that, throughout Step 3, interactions with Hitachi-GE had been positive. The company had been “responsive and open to constructive challenge and engagement”, she said.
The next milestone in the GDA process will be the start of the Environment Agency’s and Natural Resources Wales (NRW) consultation on the environmental part of the assessment, which is planned to start in October 2016.
