Knowledge and Experience Sharing Workshops

Establishing a Nuclear Safety Infrastructure for a National Nuclear Power Programme

Argonne, December 2010

Read disclaimer

A nuclear power programme is a major undertaking requiring careful planning, preparation and a major investment in time and human resources. While nuclear power is not unique in this respect, it is different because of the safety issues associated with the possession and handling of nuclear material and the long time commitment to ensuring safety after the decision to embark on a nuclear power programme has been made.

The objective of this course is to introduce participants to the set of institutional, organizational and technical elements and conditions that need to be established in a country to provide a sound foundation for ensuring a sustainable high level of nuclear safety.
