Russia to submit nuclear safety reportApril 14th, 2008 - 8:00 pm ICT by admin
Moscow, April 14 (RIA Novosti) Russia will submit a report on its nuclear and radioactive safety to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) April 18 in Vienna, the country’s industrial safety regulator said Monday. The UN nuclear watchdog holds meetings of the world’s nuclear power countries every three years to review the state of global nuclear safety.
The talks are part of the Convention on Nuclear Safety (CNS), a major legally binding international treaty.
The CNS meetings review operational and regulatory aspects of civilian nuclear power plants in the convention member states.
The report prepared by Russia’s federal environmental, engineering and nuclear supervision agency Rostekhnadzor notifies about changes in the legislative and regulatory framework of the operation of Russia’s nuclear industry and includes information on the safe storage of radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel.
In addition, the report provides information on the operation of Russia’s state-controlled nuclear power corporation Rosenergoatom.
At present, there are 61 contracting parties to the Convention on Nuclear Safety.
