Webinars: Nuclear Installation safety

Webinar on IAEA Applicability of IAEA Safety Standards to the Design of Novel Advanced Reactors including SMRs

This webinar will provide an overview to interested stakeholders from industry and regulatory bodies of the outcomes of the review of applicability of IAEA Safety Standards to NARs, with focus on the design safety and give an insight of the activities that the IAEA has planned to address the findings of the review and produce additional guidance where needed.

GC65 Nuclear Safety and Security Side Event - Licensing Novel Advanced Reactors: Addressing the Challenges

This event highlighted the latest IAEA safety related activities on novel advanced reactors, including Small Modular Reactors (SMR) and the SMR Regulators’ Forum. It covered a wide range of topics; from licensing to the applicability of IAEA safety standards to these technologies including siting, design, commissioning and operation; and the development of a technology-neutral safety assessment framework. A panel of senior regulators considered how the IAEA activities and future plans could best support them to address the issues they are facing on the regulatory assessment of these technologies.

Talks on Operational Safety

Participate in our free webinars on operational safety topics and take the opportunity to share experiences and learn from Senior Executives of top performing nuclear power plants and fleets in the nuclear industry.

Maintaining Nuclear Safety of Research Reactors During a Pandemic

This IAEA webinar will discuss some of the challenges faced by research reactors during the COVID-19 pandemic and the measures which have and are being adopted by operating organizations and by regulatory bodies to ensure safe and reliable operation.

Maintaining Nuclear Safety of Nuclear Fuel Cycle Facilities During a Pandemic

This IAEA webinar will discuss some of the challenges faced by Nuclear Fuel Cycle Facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic and the measures which have and are being adopted by operating organizations and by regulatory bodies to ensure safe and reliable operation.

Expanding NPP Risk Assessment To Multi-Unit Context: Achievements And Challenges

This IAEA webinar presents results of recent IAEA project on Multi-unit (MU) Probabilistic Safety Assessment implemented by IAEA Division of Nuclear Installation Safety. The speakers will discuss the challenges and benefits of multi-unit risk assessment including risk-informed decision making and risk management in a multi-unit context.

Application of a Graded Approach in Regulating Nuclear Facilities

This IAEA webinar will provide an overview on the application of a graded approach in regulating nuclear installations including practical examples from experienced regulators. A graded approach is a structured method by means of which the stringency of application of requirements is varied in accordance with the circumstances at nuclear facilities.

Towards a Technology Neutral Nuclear Safety and Regulatory Framework: Applicability of IAEA Safety Standards to SMRs - Questionnaire to SMR Vendors

The IAEA Department of Nuclear Safety and Security (with involvement from the IAEA Department of Nuclear Energy) is developing a new safety report to provide a high-level mapping of applicability of various areas of the IAEA safety standards to Small Modular Reactors (SMRs), including water cooled SMR, high temperature gas cooled reactors (HTGR), sodium fast reactors (SFR), lead fast reactors (LFR), molten salt reactors (MSR), marine based SMRs and micro reactors, and identify areas of applicability and gaps.

The objective of this effort is to inform interested stakeholders on the future IAEA course of action on SMR safety. The first step is the comprehensive identification of areas of novelty of SMRs via a questionnaire to be distributed to SMR vendors listed in the 2020 Booklet published by IAEA Nuclear Energy.

The purpose of this IAEA webinar is to:

  • Provide an overview to the SMR vendors on the scope of the New Safety Report under development "Towards a Technology Neutral Nuclear Safety and Regulatory Framework: Applicability of IAEA Safety Standards to SMRs";
  • Provide an overview of the SMR questionnaire that is a key input to the safety report and an opportunity for vendors to ask questions on the questionnaire. SMR vendors will then be invited to fill this questionnaire.

Webinar on Experiences in Member States in Ensuring Safe, Secure and Reliable Operation of Nuclear and Radiation Facilities and Activities during the COVID-19 Pandemic (EVT2100907)

The purpose of this IAEA webinar is to share experiences and discuss preliminary lessons learned at nuclear and radiation facilities in managing the risks posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The webinar will also provide an opportunity to discuss considerations for the enhancement of preparation for, response to and recovery from the ongoing and future pandemics. The IAEA has developed a draft technical report summarizing experiences in Member States in ensuring safe, secure and reliable operation of nuclear and radiation facilities and activities during the COVID-19 pandemic - the report will be also presented to participants.
