ENEF WG Risks / Bernard Fourest 12 September 2012 PRAGUEBRATISLAVA ENEF WG RISKS Current activities of the SWG Nuclear Installation Safety Bernard Fourest Chair of Subgroup Nuclear Installation Safety
ENEF WG Risks / Bernard Fourest – 12 September 2012 | 2 SWG NIS - Current Activities EU Stress Test – Peer Review process WENRA conclusions and ENSREG Actions plan Review of the existing EURATOM nuclear safety regulatory framework Endorsement of the ERDA report: Roadmap towards European Reactor Design Acceptance
ENEF WG Risks / Bernard Fourest – 12 September 2012 | 3 EU Stress Test – Peer Review process
ENEF WG Risks / Bernard Fourest – 12 September 2012 | 4 EU STRESS Test – Peer Review process 25 April: Final report of the stress tests peer review approved by ENSREG. 8 May: Public meeting in Bruxelles to discuss results of the peer review process. 24 May: WENRA lessons learnt from the stress tests Commission report to the European Council on the peer review results postponed till autumn. 25 July ENSREG published an actions plan Follow-up of the peer review of the stress tests performed on European NPPs.
ENEF WG Risks / Bernard Fourest – 12 September 2012 | 5 WENRA Conclusions and lessons from Fukushima Institutional Independance of Regulatory Bodies. Roles and responsibilities of Governments, regulators and utilities Periodic Safety Review. Mutual assistance among Regulators in response to accidents. Cultural Continuous improvement Technical Natural hazards Containment in severe accident Accident management
ENEF WG Risks / Bernard Fourest – 12 September 2012 | 6 ENSREG Actions Plan (1/2) Member States and ENSREG Actions National regulators to develop actions plan associated with stress test peer review recommendations. Update of implementation status of stress tests conclusion by end 2012 ENSREG workshop March2013 to discuss status and implementation of national actions plan ENSREG supports WENRA actions Follow-up fact finding site visits To promote further cooperation and confidence building between countries With the same kind of organisation Input of EC report to the European Council
ENEF WG Risks / Bernard Fourest – 12 September 2012 | 7 ENSREG Actions Plan (2/2) Off-site Emergency Prepardness HERCA and WENRA to develop guidanceon mutual assistance between regulators. A joint european studies to identify how to implement effective off-site emergency prepardness at the European level IAEA Emergency Prepardness review methodology recognized ENSREG will contribute to IAEA actions plan Transparency and public involvment All national actions plans and ENSREG actiosn to be made public Results of March workshop will be made public
ENEF WG Risks / Bernard Fourest – 12 September 2012 | 8 ENEF SWG NIS response to the EC Consultation COM conducted from Dec 2011 until end of Feb 2012 a public consultation on areas of reinforcing the existing EURATOM nuclear safety legislative framework asking stakeholders for comments SWG NIS therefore developed a set of recommendations which could be used by stakeholders for response. Major items were discussed with EC experts. EC was provided on 24 February 2012 Major items addressed: o Finalize WENRA harmonization process o Implement long term operation process o Consider WENRA Safety Objectives for new built o Ensure performance of regular peer reviews o Harmonize transparency and public information o Assess cross-border emergency preparedness
ENEF WG Risks / Bernard Fourest – 12 September 2012 | 9 Review of the legislative framework for nuclear safety On this basis, NIS prepared a report on Review and possible improvements of the existing EURATOM nuclear safety regulatory framework. A first version of this report was endorsed by WG/RISK on 19 April. This Progress Report was presented by the WG/RISK Chairman at the 2012 ENEF plenary in Bratislava. It was well received by the attendance. Final document should be prepared by the end of this year taking into account the results of the stress test and peer review process, including Commission recommendations
ENEF WG Risks / Bernard Fourest – 12 September 2012 | 10 Review of the legislative framework for nuclear safety SWG NIS meeting 5 July 2012 Reviewed the progress report and considered that it remains essentially valid. Considered that the main task for the group is to analyse the ENSREG peer review report of the stress test. Decided to set up a small task force to prepare this analysis. Potential evolution of the CNS and progress of IAEA action plan will be monitored by NIS members and industry position on these will be included in the final NIS report if necessary.
ENEF WG Risks / Bernard Fourest – 12 September 2012 | 11 Review of the legislative framework for nuclear safety Task force to analyse ENSREG peer review report Task force members (Eon, Vatenfall, EDF, Cez, ENISS) Main objective of the TF: to identify among the recommendations of the report: Technical requirements useful to be harmonized, that could be dealt with through WENRA/ENISS discussions Issues to be included in the on going revision of the BSS Issues that could be candidate to be included in a revision of the Safety Directive. ENSREG action plan and WENRA lessons learnt to be included in the analysis Results of the TF will be discussed at the next NIS meeting 19 October.
ENEF WG Risks / Bernard Fourest – 12 September 2012 | 12 Roadmap towards European Reactor Design Acceptance Meetings: 23 February, 20 April, 21 June, 4 July 2012 Participants: Utilities (EON, EDF, EDF Energy, RWE, Vattenfall, GDF Suez, Nuclearelectrica), Vendors (AREVA, Westinghouse), NGOs (FORATOM/ENISS, BULATOM; ETSON), National Ministry (Poland), Consultants (Engineers, lawyers) Meeting with EC experts (14 February 2012) o Presentation of preliminary results (status end of December) o Advantages for regulators should be emphasized o Analysis of strengths and weaknesses to be performed The document has been revised and significantly developed. Presented today for endorsement by WG RISKS (see next presentation)
