Abstract
Since 2012 the Lead-cooled Fast Reactor provisional System Steering Committee (LFR-pSSC) of the Generation IV International Forum (GIF) has developed a number of top level strategic activities with the aim to assist and support development of Lead-cooled Fast Reactor technology in member countries and entities. The current full members of the GIF-LFR-pSSC (i.e., signatories of the GIF LFR Memorandum of Understanding /MoU/) are: EURATOM, JAPAN, the RUSSIAN FEDERATION, and the REPUBLIC OF KOREA. The pSSC also benefits from the active participation of its observers: the UNITED STATES and the PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF CHINA. The paper highlights some of the main collaborative achievements of LFR- pSSC, including the development of the LFR System Research Plan, the LFR White Paper on Safety, the LFR System Safety Assessment paper as well as the LFR Safety Design Criteria paper. The paper then presents the status of the development of LFRs in the GIF member countries and entities. The collaboration among partners of the GIF-LFR-pSSC has proven its effectiveness in assisting the development of LFRs through an open, interactive and collegial environment, developing important synergies and exchange of both technical and strategic information.
