An important element of the IAEA Milestones Approach is a mechanism to coordinate efforts among the many organizations and individuals who have roles to play in considering and developing a nuclear power programme. This mechanism is referred to as a nuclear energy programme implementing organization (NEPIO).

This second webinar of the IAEA webinar series on the role of government and key organizations in nuclear power programme development will focus on the evolving responsibilities and functions of a NEPIO, as well as possible structures for this key organization (the others being the regulatory body and the owner/operator of the nuclear power plant).

Expert speakers from IAEA Member States will share their experiences in coordinating national efforts to establish or expand a national nuclear power programme.

By attending this webinar, participants will:

  • Improve their knowledge on the NEPIO’s responsibilities and functions, and how these evolve in each phase of the IAEA Milestones Approach to develop the nuclear power infrastructure;
  • Increase their awareness on possible NEPIO structures and hear about Member State experiences in coordinating the national effort to establish a successful nuclear power programme;
  • Gain insights from specific examples of a NEPIO’s activities and learn how programme development is aligned so as to be consistent with national policies and strategies.
