  • Contrôle review #194: ASN report abstracts on the state of Nuclear Safety and Radiation Protection in France in 2011
    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 management

  • Contrôle review No. 190 : Radioactive waste management: progress and outlook
    number 165 of Contrôle magazine was devoted to the management of radioactive waste in France It was an opportunity for the various stakeholders involved to have their say nearly 15 years after the 30th December 1991 Act known as the Bataille Act and a few months prior to the Parliamentary debate of a radioactive waste management bill taking account of scientific and technical knowledge progress and which was to lead to the Act of 28th June 2006 That issue also came out on the eve of the public debate held from September 2005 to January 2006 on the subject of radioactive waste management more particularly high and intermediate level long lived waste with the aim both of informing the public but also giving them an opportunity to express their opinion on this topic Six years later many changes have taken place in the field of radioactive waste management First of all at a legislative level planning Act 2006 739 of 28th June 2006 on the sustainable management of radioactive materials and waste following on from the considerable work done jointly with the French Parliamentary Office for the evaluation of scientific and technological choices confirmed the areas of research and set a new time frame Act 2006 686 of 13th June 2006 on transparency and security in the nuclear field confirmed ASN s role as regulator of nuclear installations It also set up the High Commission for transparency and information on nuclear safety which plays an essential role in this field with regard to waste management Concerning the projects for disposal of high and intermediate level long lived waste or low level long lived waste the process to identify sites continues even if the road ahead is today still a long one Much has been learned from the progress made in particular in the public sector thus demonstrating the decisive role of the consultation process but also the complexity and fundamental nature of the research aimed at ensuring the greatest possible safety and security Finally in recent years two versions of the National radioactive materials and waste management plan PNGMDR have been drafted This tool was created more than ten years ago at the initiative of ASN which worked closely on it with the Directorate General for the Energy and the Climate The PNGMDR is today essential in providing a clear strategy and roadmap for management of all radioactive materials and waste Together with the set of legal texts already mentioned and a dedicated radioactive waste agency ANDRA the PNGMDR constitutes the third pillar of the French radioactive waste management system The past six years have already seen a number of major steps and the next few years will also be marked by significant milestones organisation of the public debate prior to submission of the authorisation application for a deep geological repository for high and intermediate level long lived waste then the review procedure for the repository creation application resumption of research into siting of the low level long lived waste
