Outstanding Know-How & Sustainable Innovations

Focus Session

Tuesday, 16 May 2017, 14:00 – 17:30

Coordinator: Dr. Christian Raetzke, CONLAR Consulting on Nuclear Law, Licensing and Regulation, Germany

For emerging nuclear countries, leveraging the experience and know-how of established nuclear countries has positive effects on the viability of a project, on economics and on nuclear safety. For countries with mature regulations and a well-proven nuclear industry such as Germany, this leveraging can be both a business asset and a means to ensure implementation of an effective regulatory system.

Panel Discussion on the Topics

 

  • Which regulatory features (including standards) of established nuclear countriesm (such as Germany) should emerging or growing nuclear countries take over and which not?
  • What can regulators and technical support organisations do to support their peers in newcomer countries?
  • How can the German nuclear industry leverage its experience to the benefit of growing nuclear industries?
