LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's nuclear regulator said it may resolve by the end of the year all outstanding issues regarding the proposed operation of EDF's and Areva's new-generation European Pressurised Water Reactor (EPR) in Britain.

The French companies, together with junior partner Centrica, plan to build four EPRs in Britain, the first of which would be located at Hinkley Point in Somerset, England.

The Office for Nuclear Regulation is in the process of licensing the EPR design for operation in the UK, a thorough review also known as Generic Design Assessment (GDA) that has already taken several years.
