The WPBWR covers all boiling water reactors, including ABWRs and Economic Simplified Boiling Water Reactors (ESBWRs). The WPBWR is responsible for establishing; 1) an international forum to exchange information and experience specifically on regulation issues regarding BWRs, including those in design, construction, commissioning, operation and decommissioning, 2) a way to identify international safety challenges within BWRs to share national perspectives, and 3) a range of appropriate opportunities for international collaboration on regulatory activities related to BWRs that will lead to improvements in the nuclear safety area.
The WPBWR will perform a self-assessment after its first year or two to determine whether its activities may continue in the long-term with the support of the CNRA.
