Instrument for Nuclear Safety Cooperation II 2014-2020 INSC II Open!

Objectives

The Union shall finance measures to support the promotion of a high level of nuclear safety, radiation protection, and the appli­cation of efficient and effective safeguards of nuclear material in third countries.
 
Cooperation under this Regulation shall pursue the following specific objectives:
  1. The promotion of an effective nuclear safety culture and implementation of the highest nuclear safety and radiation protection standards, and continuous improvement of nuclear safety.
  2. Responsible and safe management of spent fuel and radioac­tive waste, namely transport, pre-treatment, treatment, processing, storage and disposal, and the decommissioning and remediation of former nuclear sites and installations.
  3. The establishment of frameworks and methodologies for the application of efficient and effective safeguards for nuclear material in third countries.

Actions

  • Support for regulatory bodies, technical support organisa­tions.
  • Reinforcement of the regulatory framework, in particular with regard to review and assessment, licensing and over­ sight activities for nuclear power plants and other nuclear installations.
  • Promotion of effective regulatory frameworks, procedures and systems to ensure adequate protection against ionising radiations from radioactive materials, in particular from high activity radioactive sources, and their safe disposal.
  • Establishment of effective arrangements for the prevention of accidents with radiological consequences, including acci­dental exposure, as well as the mitigation of such conse­quences should they occur, for example, monitoring the environment in case of radioactive releases, design and implementation of mitigation and remediation activities and cooperation with national and international organisations in the case of accidental exposure, and for emergency-planning, preparedness and response, civil protection and rehabilita­tion measures.
  • Support for ensuring safety of nuclear installations and sites regarding practical protective measures designed to reduce existing radiation risks to the health of workers and of the general public.
  • Support for regulatory bodies, technical support organisa­tions, and the reinforcement of the regulatory framework, in particular with regard to the responsible and safe manage­ment of spent nuclear fuel and radioactive waste.
  • Development and implementation of specific strategies and frameworks for the responsible and safe management of spent nuclear fuel and radioactive waste.
  • Development and implementation of strategies and frame­ works for decommissioning existing installations, for the remediation of former nuclear sites and legacy sites related to uranium mining, and for the recovery and management of sunken radioactive objects and material at sea.
  • The establishment of the necessary regulatory framework, methodologies, technology and approaches for the imple­mentation of nuclear safeguards, including for the proper accounting and control of fissile materials at State and operators' level.
  • Support for the infrastructure and training of personnel.
