  • Position of the ASN Commission: : “The safety of new nuclear reactor ...
    ASN adopts a position on small beam radiotherapy treatments radiosurgery EPR Pressurised Water Reactor New nuclear reactors built around the world The ASN strategy The ASN commission The ASN organisation Technical support Professional events Contact us Back to news list Position of the ASN Commission The safety of new nuclear reactor construction projects worldwide has to be ensured 16 06 2008 4 30 pm Note d information Position of the ASN Commission The safety of new nuclear reactor construction projects worldwide has to be ensured At a time when taking into account the current energy situation many countries are seeking to build nuclear reactors ASN is taking a stand The mission of the French Nuclear Safety Authority ASN is the regulation of nuclear safety and radiation protection in France on behalf of the State and informing the public To carry out its mission ASN must also contribute to developing and sustaining a high level of nuclear safety worldwide This is particularly the case in countries which do not yet have electricity producing civil nuclear power plants and wish to acquire them Let us be frank learning about nuclear safety is a long process The International Atomic Energy Agency IAEA in 2007 and the industrialised nations International Nuclear Regulators Association INRA in 2008 have clearly stated that a considerable period of time is necessary to acquire competences and a true safety culture before operating a nuclear power station It is the responsibility of a country upon committing itself for many years to a nuclear programme which demands significant investment to create effective regulation of nuclear safety First and foremost it is necessary to establish a suitably qualified and independent safety authority This does not consist simply of importing competences nor writing or even copying specific laws based on existing models At least 5 years are needed to create a law establish an authority and render it operational by mobilizing appropriate competences in terms of safety and regulation Furthermore international experience shows that examination by this authority of an authorization application for the creation of a nuclear reactor takes 2 to 10 years a period which is all the longer for there being no local operation of a nuclear installation of lesser complexity on which to implement the system Finally the construction time of an electricity producing reactor is approximately 5 years due most notably to technology related time frames which cannot be reduced and the need for site supervision This leads therefore to a minimum period of 15 years before it is possible to begin operating a nuclear power reactor in favourable conditions ASN can assist countries which are new to nuclear power and seek help in developing the necessary legislative and regulatory framework staff in training nuclear pressurised equipment regulation examination of safety reports construction site inspection and operation regulation which should all remain the responsibility of the country s own safety authority ASN will assist existing or new safety authorities in these countries It falls to the government to

    for medical use must not be allowed to compromise the safety of the reactors in which they are produced 16 09 2009 6 34 pm Note d information While the reactors supplying most of the worldwide production of radioelements for medical use have now been in operation for over forty years the French nuclear safety authority ASN wishes to alert stakeholders to the need to avoid any conflicts between public health and nuclear safety in the production of these radioelements ASN believes that the solution is not to extend the operation of these old reactors but rather to adopt a new concerted approach at an international scale Radioisotopes or radioactive markers are used in the diagnosis and treatment of a number of pathologies Metastable technetium 99 Tc 99m is the most widely used radioelement in medical imaging with over 35 million examinations being carried out each year throughout the world It is manufactured from molybdenum 99 Mo 99 obtained by the neutron irradiation of enriched uranium targets in a reactor It is the production of this radioelement that is causing at present the most concern The majority of world production currently comes from five ageing research reactors NRU at Chalk River in Canada commissioned in 1957 40 HFR at Petten in the Netherlands commissionedin 1961 30 Safari at Pelindaba in South Africa commissionedin 1965 10 BR2 at Mol in Belgium commissioned in 1961 9 OSIRIS at Saclay in France commissioned in 1965 5 The safety of these research reactors is supervised by the nuclear safety authorities in each of the countries concerned In France ASN is responsible for supervising the safety of the OSIRIS reactor Given the advanced age of this reactor ASN decided on the 16 September 2008 that the operation of this reactor would not be permitted beyond 2015 at the latest and required a major programme to improve safety In 2007 a prolonged shutdown of the Canadian NRU reactor recently re started up under authorization of the Canadian Parliament and against the advice of the Canadian safety authority resulted in a worldwide severe shortage of technetium that lasted for several weeks A new shortage occurred in 2008 due to the unplanned shutdown of the Dutch HFR reactor In view of this situation medical services were obliged to curtail their programmes of examinations ASN believes that similar situations are bound to recur in the short and medium term Situations in which two or more of these reactors are shut down at the same time are indeed unavoidable for the following reasons These reactors are subject to programmed shutdowns of varying durations to allow maintenance or modification operations to be carried out The OSIRIS reactor will be shut down for this reason between March and September 2010 After forty years of operation the aging of materials and structures within these reactors is likely to result in the development of failures The Canadian NRU reactor was shut down in mid May 2009 until at least the Spring of 2010 while
