The Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation (FANR), the country’s independent nuclear regulatory body, has invited the public to review and comment on its draft regulation on Operational Safety Including Commissioning (FANR-REG-16).
This regulation establishes the requirements for the commissioning and operation of a nuclear facility. It covers commissioning and operation up to the removal of nuclear fuel from the nuclear facility including testing, inspection, maintenance and modifications made throughout the lifetime of the nuclear facility. It covers also the preparation required for the decommissioning of the nuclear facility.
The draft regulation is available on the FANR website www.fanr.gov.ae. Members of the public can send their comments to [email protected] the next 30 days (from 26 June to 26 July 2014). FANR’s Safety, Security and Safeguards Glossary can help interested readers to understand the specific terminology used in this regulation.
As with previous regulations and regulatory guides, this draft regulation has already been made available for 30 days to local and federal government entities for their comments.
FANR recognises the importance of the public’s comments and maintains the highest standards of transparency in accordance with Article 9 of the Federal Law by Decree No 6 of 2009, Concerning the Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy.
Since FANR’s establishment on 24 September 2009, the nuclear regulator has asked its stakeholders to review and comment on various regulations and regulatory guides through either web-based or face-to-face communication.
