The introduction and development of a nuclear power programme is a major undertaking. It requires the building of a nuclear infrastructure to construct and operate nuclear power plants in a safe, secure and technically sound manner. This publication provides practical guidance on the main activities, responsibilities and desirable attributes of the designated owner/operator in a country initiating a nuclear power programme. It also describes the interfaces that the owner/operator will need to have with other organizations involved in the nuclear power programme.
