The third webinar in this series will address the responsibilities and capabilities of owners and operators of nuclear power plants, as laid out in the IAEA Milestone Approach. This phased, comprehensive methodology 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.

The objectives of this webinar are to introduce the IAEA’s perspective on the overall responsibilities and capabilities of owners and operators in countries initiating or implementing a nuclear power programme and show how they evolve with time, throughout the phases of the Milestones Approach.

By attending this webinar, participants will:

  • Gain a general understanding of the responsibilities and capabilities of the owner/operator organisations in the implementation of a new nuclear power project;
  • Learn about experiences by embarking countries in setting up a nuclear power project management organization; and
  • Increase awareness of the complementarity of IAEA support in developing the infrastructure for a nuclear power programme, and WANO support towards operational readiness of the future operator organization.
