This is the first webinar in the IAEA Webinar Series on the role of the government and key organizations involved developing new nuclear power programmes. It will introduce the IAEA Milestones Approach, a phased methodology that helps countries create an enabling environment for the implementation or expansion of a nuclear power programme and to understand, and prepare for, the associated commitments and obligations. It will also address the key national organizations that are typically involved in developing the infrastructure for new nuclear power programmes. Expert speakers from IAEA Member States will share their experiences in nuclear power programme development and expansion. Subsequent webinars will build on this introduction.

By attending this webinar, participants will:

  • Increase their awareness of the IAEA Milestones Approach and its three phases, three milestones, and 19 related nuclear infrastructure issues;
  • Strengthen their knowledge about international obligations and commitments associated with introducing nuclear power, and the need for a well-coordinated national effort to establish a successful nuclear power programme;
  • Gain a general understanding of the roles and responsibilities of the key organizations involved in establishing a nuclear power programme in each phase of the Milestones Approach:  Nuclear Energy Programme Implementing Organization (NEPIO), Regulatory Body, and Owner-Operator.
