Regular features



Radiation protection

The Steering Group of the Information System on Occupational Exposure (ISOE) - for which the NEA and IAEA serve as a joint secretariat - held its annual meeting on 8-10 November 2000 at the IAEA Headquarters in Vienna. During this meeting, the ISOE Steering Group launched several new programmes and initiatives and approved the ISOE programme for 2001. A topical discussion on Deregulation of the electricity market and its implications on radiation protection in nuclear installations was the highlight of the meeting. For more information, see www.oecd-nea.org/jointproj/isoe.html.

The NEA programme in the field of nuclear emergency preparedness and management is currently focusing on preparations for the next International Nuclear Emergency Exercise, INEX 2000. This will be held at the Gravelines nuclear power plant in northern France on 22-23 May 2001. At its meeting on 27-28 November, the INEX 2000 Planning Committee finalised an evaluation procedure for the exercise's follow-up. For more information, see  www.oecd-nea.org/rp/inex/index.html.


Nuclear science

The International Conference on Advanced Monte Carlo for Radiation Physics, Particle Transport Simulation and Applications (MC2000) was held on 23-26 October. This was the largest conference on this topic so far. It will have an impact on a wider and improved utilisation of the Monte Carlo methods in real life applications. For more information, see www.oecd-nea.org/12-00-ns.html and the MC2000 official website itn1.itn.pt/Meetings/MC2000/.

The final reports of the OECD/NEA - US/NRC PWR Main Steam Line Break Benchmark are being finalised and published. A summary of this activity is now available at www.oecd-nea.org/general/mnb/12-00-ns1.html.


Nuclear law

An International School of Nuclear Law has been established to provide high quality education in the various aspects of this discipline both for law students pursuing their studies at doctoral or masters level and young legal professionals already active in the nuclear sector. For more information, see 12-00-law.html.

Data Bank

The Expert Group on Organic Ligands within the NEA Thermochemical Database (TDB) project met in Zürich, Switzerland on 13-15 November 2000. The group is reviewing simple organic compounds for nickel, zirconium, selenium, technetium, uranium, neptunium, plutonium, and americium with a view to publishing recommended thermochemical data for these compounds in 2001. For more information about the TDB project, see www.oecd-nea.org/dbtdb.

Dates and topics of forthcoming training courses can be found at www.oecd-nea.org/databank/training.html.
