    nuclear facilities These assessments are in response to the Prime Minister s 23rd March 2011 request for an audit of French facilities and that of the European Council of 24th and 25th March 2011 for the performance of stress tests on the European nuclear power generating reactors ASN published its report which was submitted to the Prime Minister and forwarded to the European Commission in early 2012 Subsequent to the complementary safety assessments ASN considers that the level of safety in the facilities examined is high enough not to require that any of them be shutdown At the same time it considers that their continued operation is conditional upon increasing their robustness to extreme situations over and above their existing safety margins as rapidly as possible It therefore imposes a range of measures on the licensees Furthermore ASN considers that social organisational and human factors are a key aspect of safety It will thus be particularly attentive to the renewal of licensee staff and skills as well as how the use of subcontractors is organised All the steps taken and the opinions issued by ASN following the Fukushima accident are described in the Fukushima one year later part A process of peer review of the national reports conducted at a European level has already started and should continue until June 2012 ASN will draw its conclusions from the results of these peer reviews In order to improve safety worldwide it is essential that there be complete feedback from the Fukushima accident and Europe must promote the stress tests approach and results internationally A major step will be the extraordinary meeting of the Convention on Nuclear Safety to be held in Vienna at the end of August 2012 As part of the energy debate currently ongoing in France ASN would recall that whichever scenario is chosen the safety of the nuclear facilities must be guaranteed in all circumstances whether in terms of construction operation or decommissioning ASN will ensure that the necessary investments are made and that sufficient skills are maintained for all the scenarios It stresses the fact that were reactor operations to be continued beyond 40 years this would require significant safety improvements in particular with respect to severe accidents It would adopt as its benchmark the safety objectives of the new reactors EPR taking account of the experience feedback from the Fukushima accident ASN will require shutdown of those facilities unable to achieve the required level of safety In this context to avoid creating situations in which the demands of safety conflict with those of energy supply it is crucial to be able to anticipate the renewal of electricity production capacity whichever production method is chosen Radioactive waste management In the field of the regulation of radioactive waste management 2012 will be devoted to preparing the new edition of the national radioactive materials and waste management plan PNGMDR 2013 2015 which is a key element in waste management because its aim is to ensure that there are reliable
