17 Feedback from IRSS missions Member States (having received an IRRS mission) are expected to provide the ENSREG IRRS Coordination Group with a summary covering the following issues: general aspects on the conduct of the mission experts of the mission team (expertise, familiarity with the IRRS Guide-lines and IAEA Safety Requirements, familiarity with the advance material etc.) deficiencies in the IRRS Guidelines relevance of the mission findings (recommendations, suggestions) for the Member States' needs other issues. 2014-01-22 17

18 IAEA additional resources for implementing EU IRRS missions Support to the IAEA through EC Contract :  Additional staff for the IAEA  « Targetted Consultancies » were organized by the IAEA (2011-2012)  Basic IRRS Training Course organized by the IAEA (October 2013) for training of new EU experts 18 2014-01-22

19 Conclusion The MoU is an effective tool for facilitating and monitoring the IRRS missions in EU countries The process is effective and efficient The EU pool of experts is adequately staffed Through feedback and support to the IAEA, opportunities for improvements to the IRRS process exist 19 2014-01-22
