Training Course on Nuclear Supply Chain and Procurement Management

18 – 22 Jul 2022
Virtual event
Vienna, Austria
Event code: EVT2103902

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 products and services for NPPs need to comply with well-established requirements and suppliers need to have a sustainable management system for choosing their sub-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, supply chain disturbances and sometimes even conflicts have impacted the availability of products and the mobility of service suppliers. Effective and efficient oversight of the global nuclear supply chain is crucial to safety and quality both in nuclear new build and in operating nuclear facilities.

The purpose of this event is to provide training for specialists at, and newcomers to, nuclear facilities on nuclear supply chain oversight, including the related standards and management, procurement and engineering issues. The event will also aim to provide Member States with information on good practices for the management of procurement and supply chain activities related to the construction, operation and maintenance of nuclear facilities.
