Description

The effectiveness of nuclear regulatory systems is enhanced by portraying transparency and openness in communicating all matters relating to safety to the public and stakeholders. This plays an important role in maintaining and enhancing public confidence on the safe use of nuclear energy for socioeconomic development. The regulatory body, in presenting the comprehensive safety status of nuclear installations, can use the outcome of integrated safety assessment mechanism which considers all important aspects of safety, with openness and transparency. This data driven process provides the public, relevant organizations and decision makers with comprehensive information on safety and regulatory decisions related to nuclear installations and is intended to provide a strong basis for, confidence in the regulatory decisions and information system. This publication provides practical information on the development of an integrated safety assessment mechanism by the regulatory bodies for nuclear installations.
