Licensing and Permitting Task Force conference outcomes
The World Nuclear Association Licensing and Permitting Task Force, a joint effort between the Law Working Group and CORDEL held a major two-day conference in conjunction with the World Nuclear Fuel Cycle conference in Prague this week.
Nuclear industry leaders in safety and law joined with senior regulators to discuss their views on the licensing of nuclear power plants and other nuclear facilities and the benefits of harmonisation and standardisation.
While barriers exist in both the technical and political arenas , the consensus was that continued dialogue between the regulatory and licensee communities was essential and that this this can best be carried out through programmes such as MDEP and CORDEL and communication of the sort that has already been established between these two groups.
