  • Contrôle review No. 189 - The construction of a European nuclear safety and radiation protection area
    after the adoption of a European Directive on nuclear safety a European area for nuclear safety and radiation protection is more and more taking shape Contrôle obviously had to produce an issue on such an important topic The French Nuclear Safety Authority ASN has always been very keen on pursuing an international policy in its activities Actually article 9 of the Nuclear Transparency and Security Act Loi TSN which describes the ASN prerogatives in international relations has structured a can do policy It is confirmed by the very strong ASN involvement for many years in such international organizations as IAEA and NEA and in European forums in the extent of relations established with the foreign safety Authorities or its involvement in the creation and operation of structures like WENRA or MDEP Multinational Design Evaluation Programme Europe holds a special place in ASN international policy and we shall look at it from three complementary angles Europe through bilateral relations whereby we can discuss intense and fruitful technical cooperation with our immediate neighbours and the other European countries It is also manifest in cross border inspections and personnel exchanges Europe through regulators networks including WENRA Western European Nuclear Regulators Association no doubt the best known and which today has the most impressive results in terms of concrete achievements in nuclear reactor safety and waste and spent fuel management But WENRA must not hide other multilateral European initiatives which are also continuously making progress on safety and radiation protection These include the initiative by HERCA Heads of European Radiological protection Competent Authorities which has already contributed to the development and harmonization of radiation protection in Europe lastly the European Union which has provided a legal framework for drawing up public policies on radiation protection and more recently nuclear safety since 1957 the year when the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community Euratom was signed These three European dimensions interact and help construct a European area for nuclear safety and radiological protection They can none of them replace the other they exist side by side and each one helps developing this area This complex dynamic and efficient process has no international equivalent For many years ASN has been very keen on building a Europe of nuclear safety and radiation protection and has supported efforts vigorously Under its bilateral relations of course but also in setting up regulators networks Everyone is well aware of the part played by the Chairman of ASN André Claude Lacoste along with other European regulators in creating WENRA in the late 1990s the constant involvement of ASN in pursuing its work and the more recent ASN support for the setting up of HERCA ASN is also very much involved in such community forums as ENSREG European Nuclear Safety Regulators Group and committees of experts advising the Commission on the application of the Euratom Treaty In this respect in close cooperation with the French authorities and in constant dialogue with the nuclear safety Authorities of the 27 Member States and
