Recently developed chiral two-nucleon (2N) potentials are applied to various processes in three-nucleon (3N) systems within the approach based on Faddeev equations. The predictions for the cross sections in elastic nucleon-deuteron (Nd) scattering and for radiative proton-deuteron (pd) capture are similar to results based on the AV18 potential. The very good convergence with respect to the chiral expansion and a weak dependence on a regularization parameter are observed. This gives hope that the Hamiltonian combining these 2N potentials with consistent 3N forces will become an important tool to study nuclear structure and processes.
