reports were issued in January by the Committee on Nuclear Regulatory Activities
(CNRA). Two of them relate to the CNRA special issue meeting on Lifetime
Extension and Upgrading of Nuclear Power Plants held in June 2000. The
first, [NEA/CNRA/R(2001)1] gives
a synthesis of the responses received from Member countries to a questionnaire
on nuclear power plant life extension and upgrading sent out before the meeting,
as well as the meeting's results and conclusions. The second [NEA/CNRA/R(2001)2]
sets out the detailed responses from Member countries to the questionnaire.
The CNRA special issue meeting on Developing and Measuring Regulatory Effectiveness
held in June 1999 aimed to improve knowledge about regulatory effectiveness
in relation to nuclear installations and to establish a better understanding
of how regulatory effectiveness may be measured. A summary of these discussions
is available in NEA/CNRA/R(2001)3.
Radioactive waste management
on Stakeholder Confidence
(FSC) met on 17-18 January 2001 at NEA headquarters.
The FSC is intended to facilitate the sharing of experience
in addressing the societal dimension of radioactive waste management, to explore
means of ensuring an effective dialogue with the public, and to consider ways
to strengthen confidence in decision-making processes. More information
is available at 01-02-rwm.html
The NEA convened
a workshop on Better Integration of Radiation Protection in Modern Society
in Villigen, Switzerland, on 23-25 January 2001. More than 70 participants discussed
the theory and context of modern radiological risk governance, including the emerging
expectations of various stakeholder groups. More information is available at www.oecd-nea.org/general/press/2001/2001-01.html
A training course
on the SAMMY
code for the analysis of neutron-induced cross sections in
the resonance range will be organised at NEA headquarters on 9-13 April, 2001.
A detailed course programme is available at www.oecd-nea.org/dbdata/sammy/workshops/april2001
