WWER and RBMK reactors
Extrabudgetary Programme on WWER and RBMK Safety
In 1991, the Agency started an Extrabudgetary Programme to assist countries in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union in evaluating the safety of WWER and RBMK reactors. International consensus has been established on the major safety issues for these reactors, and their safety significance. The programme was completed in 1998, and a final report was published by the IAEA. An International Conference on the Strengthening of Nuclear Safety in Eastern Europe was held 14-18 June 1999 in Vienna, Austria.
