Workshop on IRSRR

The workshop on the Incident Reporting System for Research Reactors (IRSRR) was conducted jointly between the State Scientific Centre of the Russian Federation at the Research Institute of Atomic Reactors (RIAR) Dimitrovgrad, and the IAEA, within the framework of the Regional TC Project RER/9/058, in Dimitrovgrad, Russian Federation, from 6 to 10 September 2004.

The purpose of the workshop was to exchange information on events that occurred at reasearch reactors in the region, and to provide insight from operational experience feedback. Representatives of operating organisations from the countries in the region were invited to this workshop as well as representants of regulatory bodies.

The agenda for the workshop included theoretical lectures, country presentations, a technical visit at RIAR Center, and a tabletop exercise for participants.

During the workshop, the participants received lectures on: Integrated Safety Assessment of Research Reactors (INSARR); the Code of Conduct on the Safety of Research Reactors; safety requirements of research reactors; documentation retrieval from IAEA webpages and IRSRR root cause analysis, barrier analysis, task analysis and precursor analysis.

The RIAR counterpart organised a technical tour at RIAR Center. The participants had the opportunity to visit the BOR-60 research reactor, MIR-1 research reactor and SM high flux research reactor.

IRSRR meeting Sep 2004

Twenty-five participants attended the workshop. The workshop was carried out in two languages, English and Russian.

Events presented by workshop participants will be included in the IRSRR database.


The workshop implementation contributes to the exchange of information on unusual events. Lessons learned and the analysis of events presented may lead to enhancement of safety aspects for similar research reactors.

The participants stated they are interested in a workshop on safety improvements of Russian design research reactors.
