International Conference on Enhancing the Operational Safety of Nuclear Power Plants

15–19 April 2024, Beijing, China

International Conference on Enhancing the Operational Safety of Nuclear Power Plants 2024

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) fosters an exchange of information on factors impacting operational safety performance of nuclear power plants in areas such as: leadership and safety culture, safe and efficient transitioning from construction to operations for new units, corporate management and oversight, operational safety peer review findings, the role of operating experience and performance improvement activities and developments in the area of life time extensions. Specifically, the conference will allow representatives of nuclear operators, regulators, technical support organisations, construction companies and other like-minded organisations, to learn from each other’s experiences in the safe, efficient and reliable operation of nuclear power plants worldwide.

Specifically, the conference aims to:

  • Describe the leader’s role in enhancing safe operations & establishing a positive safety culture;
  • Discuss opportunities and lessons learned from new NPP construction and commissioning;
  • Present case studies for monitoring and enhancing the operational safety performance of NPPs;
  • Discuss the role of corporate oversight in maintaining and enhancing operational safety throughout the lifecycle of nuclear power plants;
  • Discuss the lessons learnt from the long term operation of NPPs, including ageing management and  the development activities needed to define the limiting factors for plant life extension;
  • Examine the importance of operating experience feedback for the enhancement of operational safety;
  • Address the various challenges faced by new operators and existing NPP operators that are extending their fleets or restarting units, including human resource management, regulatory requirements, knowledge transfer to new staff, equipment performance monitoring and safety culture.
