Explaining a Complex Technology

External audiences may lack deep technical and scientific knowledge in the areas of nuclear science and technology. Nuclear presents a range of complex applications, such as medicine, power generation, as well as industrial and agricultural uses. Explaining the physics presents one set of communication challenges. The mechanisms that protect public safety also tend to be relatively obscure.

Complex technology should be described carefully. Balance and objectivity make it possible to distribute information about safety without being promotional. Examples and statistics demonstrate how governments and users ensure the responsible use of nuclear technologies worldwide.

External communication can help to explain the details of the nuclear system such as:

  • Operators are subject to numerous safety regulations.
  • National regulations are based on international standards, recommendations and guides.
  • Regulators interpret and enforce regulatory measures to assure the safety of nuclear-related activities and to protect against the risks of ionizing radiation.
