Event code: EVT2101054

Nuclear power plants employ sophisticated engineering to generate electricity and heat for periods of at least 40 to 60 years. Various suppliers provide related products and services for NPP operators, through the life cycle of Nuclear Power Plants (NPPs) in design, manufacture, construction, operation and decommissioning. All suppliers need to comply with well established requirements and have a sustainable purchasing system for choosing its suppliers.

In recent years, the construction and operation of NPPs have been impacted by significant supply chain related concerns. Use of commercial grade items has increased, and there have been temporary shutdowns of NPPs due to the installation of counterfeit, fraudulent or substandard items. COVID-19 has impacted the whole world including mobility of nuclear suppliers. Effective and efficient oversight of the global nuclear supply chain is a crucial to safety and quality both in nuclear new build and in operating nuclear facilities.

The purpose of the event is to provide in concise information to Member States regarding good practices for the management of procurement and supply chain activities related to the construction, operation and maintenance of nuclear facilities.
