The Regulators' Forum (RF) is made up of regulators who participate in the work of the RWMC and CDLM, helping to address common regulatory issues of NEA member countries.
New reactors are light-water reactors that are in the design or construction phases. Advanced reactors refers to reactors under consideration that are cooled by fluids other than water.
Boiling water reactors (BWRs) use light water as a coolant and a moderator. This water is converted to steam in the core and then passes through a turbine.
Digital instrumentation and control equipment (DI&C) transmits information in ones and zeros, and provides a number of advantages in nuclear safety.
Codes and standards are technical positions that govern specific activities such as welding, fabrication, testing and non-destructive examination, and are crucial to nuclear safety operations.
Operating experience is the collection and dissemination of knowledge gained via the operation of nuclear facilities.
Inspection practices are the means by which a regulatory body verifies that a holder of a nuclear licence is complying with the conditions of that licence.
The OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) hosted an international symposium on “Safety Cases for the Deep Disposal of Radioactive Waste: Where Do We Stand?” in January 2007. The NEA has spearheaded import...
Regulating the long-term safety of geological disposal of radioactive waste is a key part of making progress on the radioactive waste management issue. A survey of member countries has shown that dif...
As part of its activities, the Regulators’ Forum of the NEA Radioactive Waste Management Committee has been examining the regulatory criteria for the long-term performance of geological disposal. In ...
