With its biannual meeting on 2‑3 June 2020, the NEA Committee on Nuclear Regulatory Activities (CNRA) was the first NEA Standing Technical Committee to hold a fully remote meeting.
Participants examined the draft for a new committee structure and governance, which had been developed by the CNRA Bureau based on a survey on member country priorities, and made notable progress on the committee's strategic review. The Bureau plans to provide a final proposal to the committee for its December meeting.
In addition to reviewing new activity proposals and reports from various CNRA working groups, participants also discussed the role of the CNRA in responding to the COVID‑19 pandemic. CNRA members have exchanged since early April on the challenges posed by COVID‑19 with regards to nuclear inspection and human performance.
