There are a number of IAEA Member States considering nuclear power programs and accordingly establishing regulatory infrastructure for the oversight of nuclear safety and security. The lessons identified from different IAEA expert missions, peer reviews, regulatory conferences, and training workshops have highlighted that most of the countries embarking on a nuclear power programme are facing various challenges in the development and implementation of regulatory oversight in line with the phases of implementation of nuclear power programmes specified in JAEA Safety Standards Series No. SSG-16 (Rev. 1), Establishing the Safety Infrastructure for a Nuclear Power Programme. The objective of this publication is to support the development and implementation of a structured regulatory oversight programme for the operation of a first nuclear power plant to ensure safety and security throughout its lifetime by using IAEA safety standards and security guidance documents. The TECDOC provides relevant information that is useful to embarking countries by considering the challenges and offering suggested approaches for regulatory oversight of a first nuclear power plant. This publication is intended for regulatory bodies, licensees of NPPs, technical support organizations and competent authorities responsible for oversight of nuclear safety and security of NPPs.
