IAEA Completes Technical Safety Review of Bangladesh’s Nuclear Power Plant’s Design Documentation


Flag of Bangladesh

The IAEA in June 2018 completed a peer review of selected parts of the design safety documentation of the Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant (NPP), which is under construction in Bangladesh and scheduled to be commissioned by 2023.

The Technical Safety Review – Design Safety (TSR-DS) peer review was conducted as part of an IAEA technical cooperation project that focuses on achieving effective regulatory oversight during the construction phase. It aimed at training staff of the national authority on reviewing safety assessment documentation.

Preceding the hands-on training, the TSR-DS peer review team, comprising IAEA staff members and international senior experts, reviewed selected sub-chapters of the Rooppur NPP Preliminary Safety Analysis Report (PSAR) based on IAEA safety standards. It focused on the methodology of accident analysis and its application to a selected design basis accident.

The TSR-DS team provided recommendations to further enhance the PSAR documentation focusing on accident analysis.

The IAEA’s TSR services encompass six safety assessment and design safety technical subject areas. They support Member States, on request, in the application of IAEA safety standards and serve to support national authorities in carrying out their responsibility in safety assessment and design safety. The TSR services do not constitute any kind of licensing activity.
