According to the representative of the Norwegian Regulator, NRPA experts have familiarized with the most problematic issues in the field of nuclear and radiation safety regulation in Ukraine in the process of report preparation for publication. “Now it’s much easier for us to outline the priority areas of further cooperation”, said Malgorzata Sneve. In addition, she added that the report on the reassessment of threats shall contribute not only to more effective cooperation between the SNRIU and NRPA, but also to the establishment of cooperation between Ukrainian Nuclear Regulator and other international organizations.
As a result of the working meetings, the SNRIU and NRPA should, within three days, decide on a list of those projects that shall form the basis of the roadmap for cooperation between the Norwegian and Ukrainian Regulators in future. The SNRIU and its TSO experts shall submit twelve project proposals to the Norwegians for consideration.
