ENSREG held its fourth conference on nuclear safety on 28-29 June 2017 at the European Commission’s Charlemagne Building in Brussels, Belgium.
The aim of the conference was to provide an update on nuclear safety in Europe in a global context. The event addressed potential challenges for nuclear safety regulation, key recent developments in EU policy (directives on nuclear safety, on spent fuel and waste management and on basic safety standards) and emerging topics in the field of nuclear safety, such as long-term operation of nuclear installations and irregularities and supply chain control.
It was not a highly technical event but rather a forum to discuss topical issues arising in the nuclear sector with a wide range of stakeholders.
The conference was attended by speakers/panellists and participants from practically all EU Member States (including non-nuclear), representing a wide range of stakeholders, from several non-EU countries and from relevant international organisations, such as the IAEA or OECD's NEA. Nearly 280 participants registered for the conference.
