On May 18, 2017 the Federal Environmental, Industrial and Nuclear Supervision Service of Russia (Rostechnadzor) hosted the conference devoted to the 30-th anniversary of SEC NRS establishment.

Alexey Aleshin, the Chairman of Rostechnadzor, noted in his congratulatory speech that SEC NRS, which was established for the purposes of scientific and technical support of the state safety regulation at atomic energy use, has evolved into the leading organization of the Russian Federation for solving practical tasks in regulation of nuclear and radiation safety.

The priority fields of

Since August 31st, 2017 SEC NRS has become a full member of the international scientific association “Atomic Energy Research” (AER), which was founded in 1990 under the auspices of the KFKI Atomic Energy Research Institute (Hungary). The AER goal is scientific researches in the field of safety of light-water reactor (LWR) NPPs, most notably VVER NPPs.

AER associates more than 20 nuclear-related organizations from 9 countries, including utilities, research institutes and scientific & technical support organizations (TSOs) for the authorities in charge of safety

„EUROSAFE“ is a global and European initiative aimed at promoting the convergence of technical nuclear safety practices in Europe. It is formed and managed by the EUROSAFE partners Bel V (Belgium), CSN (Spain), CV REZ (Czech Republic), MTA EK (Hungary), GRS (Germany), ANVS (The Netherlands), INRNE BAS (Bulgaria), IRSN (France), NRA (Japan), JSI (Slovenia), LEI (Lithuania), PSI (Switzerland), SSM (Sweden), SEC NRS (Russia), SSTC NRS (Ukraine), VTT (Finland), VUJE (Slovakia), Wood (United Kingdom), a group of technical safety organisations (TSOs) and European regulatory bodies with nuclear safety expertise and competent in nuclear safety assessments, that create the EUROSAFE Association and the Programme Committee. Some of these organisations are also members of ETSON, the European Technical Safety Organisations Network.

With a view to promoting the formation of a European scientific and technical network in the field of nuclear safety, the EUROSAFE Association has the following objectives:

  • to form a suitable forum for exchanges on analyses and R&D in the field of nuclear safety,to share experiences, and to exchange technical and scientific opinions,
  • to contribute to fostering the convergence of technical nuclear safety practices in Europe,
  • to further the definition and the implementation of nuclear safety research programmes.

The partners are aware that a high level of nuclear safety and radiation protection is a priority for the countries of Europe; they

  • recognise the reinforcement of the European dimension in the technical, economical and societal challenges which nuclear safety has to face,
  • take note that nuclear safety expertise plays a major role in contributing to the attainment and maintenance of a high level of nuclear safety and radiation protection,
  • acknowledge that the organisations competent in nuclear safety expertise develop appropriate approaches to safety issues as part of their assessments and research activities,
  • recognise the need for increased co-operation and reinforced sharing of experience between organisations competent in nuclear safety expertise.

The EUROSAFE Forum is an international conference on nuclear safety and security, radioactive waste management and radiological protection. Since 1999, this event brings together representatives of organisations specialised in nuclear and radiological safety techniques, research institutes, power utilities, industry, public authorities and non-governmental organisations to inform about and discuss current developments and achievements in these topics.

Nuclear energy contributes approximately one third of European electricity production. A high level of nuclear safety is a priority for the countries of Europe. The technical safety organisations play an important role in contributing to that objective through appropriate approaches to major safety issues as part of their assessments and research activities.

The challenges to nuclear safety are increasingly international. Changes in underlying technologies such as instrumentation and control, the impact of electricity market deregulation, demands for improved safety, the ageing of nuclear facilities, waste management, maintaining and improving scientific and technical knowledge and the need for greater transparency - these are all issues where the value of an international approach is gaining increasing recognition.

The development of the European Union including its 2004 enlargement will also require closer collaboration between technical safety organisations and even more convergence in European nuclear safety practices. EUROSAFE aims to respond to these needs by offering a European forum for information on and discussion of important nuclear safety issues.

The EUROSAFE Tribune

Anchor Title: 

From 2001 until 2016, GRS and IRSN published the magazine "EUROSAFE Tribune". Twice a year, this publication provided readers with articles about key issues in the world of nuclear safety and radiological protection, focusing alternately on the respective EUROSAFE Forum´s main subject and special topics.
