Background

In 2006, the first International Conference on Effective Nuclear Regulatory Systems was held in Moscow, with a focus on Facing Safety and Security Challenges. This conference brought together senior nuclear safety, radiation safety and security regulators from around the world to discuss how to improve regulatory effectiveness to assure protection of the public and the environment. During the Moscow conference, senior regulators decided that a forum dedicated to discussing regulatory effectiveness was needed every three years. On 14–18 December 2009, a second International Conference on Effective Nuclear Regulatory Systems will be held in Cape Town, with a focus on Further Enhancing the Global Nuclear Safety and Security framework.

Scope and Objectives

This conference is a vital part of the global effort by senior nuclear safety and security regulators to review the effectiveness and performance of global nuclear safety and security regime, focusing on the important role regulators play in the delivery of safety and security.

The objectives of this second International Conference on Effective Nuclear Regulatory Systems are to review and assess the effectiveness of the global nuclear safety and security regime, and to propose future actions to further enhance it. more

It is expected that the conference will give recommendations and guidance on the following issues:

  • Establishing and maintaining independent and effective national regulatory systems
  • Prioritizing and addressing emerging issues concerning multinational and national responsibility for nuclear safety and security
  • Fostering effective international cooperation among regulators for the sharing of regulatory knowledge, practices and information
