The WGRNR organised an international workshop aimed to provide a forum to exchange information on lessons learned from siting, licensing and constructing new nuclear power plants around the world. Key focus areas included siting practices and regulatory positions that have been enhanced as a result of the Fukushima accident; lessons learned from licensing and design review approaches and challenges, construction experience and recommendations for regulatory oversight; and regulatory cooperation on generic and design specific issues through the MDEP specific working groups.

The workshop, held in 24-26 October 2012, in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, hosted by the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (U.S.NRC), provided a forum to communicate recent experience on these topics to a wider audience, to introduce and discuss the current programme of work and products under development in WGRNR, and to gain insights from workshop participants on each of the programme of work areas, and get feedback from participants on additional focus areas. This report documents the proceedings of the workshop.
