The Programme Review Group is made up of senior experts with broad programmatic experience and high-level responsibilities in nuclear safety technology and research. Specifically, it is formed by one expert from each of the four countries with the largest nuclear safety research programmes (i.e., France, Germany, Japan and the USA), plus three experts from the other CSNI member countries chosen on a rotating basis every two years. Currently, these are Canada, the Czech Republic and Sweden.
The Programme Review Group assists the CSNI Bureau to review proposals from the working groups, to ensure that proposals and reports have appropriate focus and alignment with the CSNI-CNRA joint strategic plan (JSP), and to enable the review of major reports in order to ensure that they are of the highest quality.
The group assists the CSNI Bureau in establishing the CSNI Operating Plan (OP) and maintaining it up to date, reviewing the integrated plans of each working group, monitoring the progress of ongoing activities within the context of the integrated plans, and at the request of CSNI, reviewing new OECD-NEA joint international project proposals with regard to their technical content and work scope.
