NEA/IAEA Workshop

Maintaining Oversight of Licensee Safety Culture Methods and Approaches

Chester, United Kingdom, 21-23 May 2007

Organised by UK Nuclear Installations Inspectorate
In co-operation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)

Logistics and organisation

Participation is invited from those who are able to make an active contribution in one or more of the above areas. It is envisaged that the workshop will primarily be of interest to representatives from regulators concerned about the potential impact of poor safety culture and/or engaged in the development or implementation of safety culture oversight methodologies. In order to enable the workshop to function effectively, attendance will be limited.

Presented papers are not sought because the workshop is designed to focus on practical group discussions. However, papers may be tabled. These will not be formally reviewed by the organizers but information about submitting a paper should be submitted to The NEA Secretariat by 28 February 2007.
