Nuclear Safety and Regulations


 

NucAdvisor Competencies

 

 

A strong focus on legal and technical matters related to safety is one of the key factors in the success of a Nuclear program; difficulties in the licensing process can have significant consequences on delays and cost.

At any stage of the implementation of a nuclear program, NucAdvisor can support Operators in the safety and the licensing of a Nuclear Facility through its capacity to bridge between technical solutions and international and national safety regulations and standards.

Furthermore, our experts have gained a thorough understanding of the regulatory and work control processes through our previous projects, in locations as diverse as Jordan, Vietnam, South Africa, France, Russia and China.

Typically NucAdvisor can assist clients by undertaking work on:

  • Environment studies (EIA),
  • Safety analysis (SAR),
  • Risk planning,
  • Emergency planning,
  • Emergency Plan Preparation and Crisis management,
  • Support to regulators,
  • Quality management,
  • Licensing support to operators,
  • Environmental Protection,
  • Radiation Protection Management and optimization (ALARA),
  • Post-Fukushima issues.

 

One of Europe's leading experts in safety, is a NucAdvisor partner, therefore Jean-Phillipe Girard will take the lead on this most important topic. Jean-Philippe Girard (Ph.D.), has more than 30 years of experience in research and development, operation and safety of nuclear facilities acquired as field worker, manager, operator, project manager, and regulator.

Most recently he was licensing project manager at the Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation in UAE.

Report on Fukushima consequences

 

In 2011 NucAdvisor was engaged to provide a report on the consequences of the accident at Fukushima, in order to highlight issues that may affect our client ambition to launch their own Nuclear energy program.

The project required regular reporting on Fukushima issues as the situation developed in the post-Tsunami situation at the plant and in the surrounding areas (land and sea), topics covered included:

  • Technical status of units 1-4,
  • Radiological fallout,
  • Decisions taken in other countries as a consequence of Fukushima,
  • Review of regulations (IAEA and others),
  • Accident analysis and lessons learned (for BWR and other designs),
  • Expected changes in Nuclear infrastructures/safety requirements.
