The importance of international peer review to the continuous improvement of regulatory effectiveness, and the opportunity it provides to share knowledge and experience of regulatory issues and good practices, has been widely acknowledged. 

ARTEMIS is the IAEA's integrated expert peer review service for radioactive waste and spent fuel management, decommissioning and remediation programmes. Based on IAEA safety standards and technical guidance, as well as on international good practices, ARTEMIS is available for Member State organizations, facilities and activities involving radioactive waste or spent fuel management, radiological impact assessments for human health and the environment, the management of residues arising from uranium production as well as the decommissioning and remediation of sites contaminated by radioactive materials.

ARTEMIS reviews provide independent expert opinion and advice, drawn from an international team of specialists convened by the IAEA. Reviews are based on the IAEA safety standards, technical guidance and international good practices. Such reviews offer many benefits to the Member State and its organizations:

•    Improved organizational performance.
•    Enhanced safety, optimized operations and reduced costs.
•    Improved transparency and stakeholder confidence, including with the general public.
•    Strengthened credibility of decision-making processes from expert technical and programme perspectives.


The objective of this webinar is to give insight in the objectives, benefits and process of the ARTEMIS missions, and to provide feedback from Member States having hosted an ARTEMIS mission and highlight expectations from Member States awaiting to host one.

The ARTEMIS Review Service is intended for facility operators and organizations responsible for radioactive waste management, as well as for regulators, national policy and other decision makers. Both government and private sector entities can call upon this service, which is also available to international organizations.
