Promoting cooperation between nuclear regulatory authorities

The European Commission, DG XI, has published a call for proposals aimed at promoting cooperation between the nuclear regulatory authorities of the EU and their counterparts in Central and Eastern countries. This is in order to identify similarities and differences in safety criteria and requirements and to develop approaches for improving harmonisation where differences are identified.

Priority will be given to initiatives based on an effective cooperation between the Member States' nuclear safety authorities and/or technical safety organisations in the applicant countries which aim at establishing consensus on regulatory practices and/or on safety criteria and requirements in the EU and the applicant countries.

Potential areas of interest include any of the following:

- Analysis of compliance with the fundamental safety principles of the IAEA for nuclear power plants;
- Use of digital instrumentation and control in safety-related components and systems for nuclear power plants;
- Management of nuclear power plant ageing;
- Regulatory applications of PSA;
- Risk based methods;
- Leak before break.
