The Expert Group on the Process of Stakeholder Involvement (EGPSI)
Terms of Reference
Created: March 2001
Next Review: March 2003
Chair: Mr. Jacques Lochard, France
The Terms of Reference of this Group are as follows:
- The Expert Group will develop a document summarising the policy-relevant
aspects of the process of stakeholder involvement. This document should
be presented during the 3rd Villigen Workshop and, based
on discussions there, be finalised for review and approval by the
CRPPH no later than the 2004 CRPPH meeting.
- In support of this first task, the Expert Group will analyse, with
the help of consultants, good practice in stakeholder involvement
in radiological protection decision making and resulting policy implications
based on recent national experiences, such as those presented during
Villigen 1 and Villigen 2 workshops. A report of this work should
be completed by early 2003 and presented at the 3rd Villigen
- The Expert Group will be responsible for the development of the
programme for the 3rd Villigen Workshop based on an enlarged
meeting of the EGPSI that will include relevant stakeholders. This
programme will be submitted to the CRPPH for review and approval during
the Committee's March 2002 meeting. The 3rd Villigen Workshop
should take place in the late Spring or early Summer of 2003.
The Expert Group will be responsible for the preparation of Workshop
proceedings that will be published, after approval by the CRPPH, within
approximately 6 months following the workshop.
- The results of this CRPPH Expert Group should be presented to the
international community, including timely submittal of a paper for
the IRPA-11 Congress, and particularly to the ICRP so that the policy-relevant
aspects of stakeholder involvement will be considered as the Commission
develops new recommendations.
- The Expert Group should report on its progress during the 2002 and
2003 meetings of the CRPPH, and should plan to complete its mandate
no later than the 2004 meeting of the CRPPH.
