Pilot Training Course on Nuclear Supply Chain Management and Procurement

30 Sep – 4 Oct 2019
Vienna, Austria
Event code: EVT1901387

Effective and efficient oversight of the global nuclear supply chain is crucial to safety and quality, in both nuclear new builds and operating nuclear facilities. However, supply chain management continues to be a challenge for Member States embarking on nuclear power programmes, as well as for those expanding their existing programmes.

This pilot training course will enable participants to learn about good practices for the management of procurement and supply chain activities related to the construction, operation and maintenance of nuclear facilities. Although the event is targeted at Member States currently operating NPPs, the principles and processes described are generally applicable to new build NPP projects, large refurbishments, advanced newcomers and other nuclear facilities. Also, the IAEA has developed a Nuclear Contracting Toolkit for NPPs and an e-learning course on procurement to support Member States in these areas.

Participants are therefore expected to provide feedback to the IAEA on potential refinements of the training course structure and the Nuclear Supply Chain Toolkit, which will be reviewed during the course. The aim is to develop an IAEA training course on nuclear supply chain management, to be held regularly, that will meet Member States’ needs.

The training course is targeted at those in charge of developing, implementing and improving supply chain management in their organizations, as well as staff from supplier and sub-supplier organizations and regulatory bodies. All persons wishing to participate in the event have to be designated by an IAEA Member State or should be members of organizations that have been invited to attend.
