Discussion Meet


Discussion meet on “Radiological Impact Assessment and Operational Intervention Levels”
 
Nuclear accident at Fukushima Nuclear Power Plants in Japan, due to earthquake and tsunami, and subsequent emergency conditions, renewed the debate over the safety of Nuclear Power Plants (NPP) worldwide w.r.t. radiological impact of such accidents and the consequent countermeasures needed as part of Emergency Preparedness & Response (EPR) planning and decision making.
 
In AERB, review and regulations are directed towards further enhancing the safety of NPPs by strengthening the design and accident management strategies, so that such emergency conditions don’t arise or can be tackled with minimum interventions in public domain. Significant advancement has taken place in the field of Radiological Impact Assessment (RIA) of accidents in NPPs as well as planning for early-phase decision-making during emergencies at NPPs. To consolidate views of stakeholders on adopting methodology for RIA and its utilisation in planning for emergencies, AERB conducted two-day discussion meet on the subject namely "Radiological Impact Assessment and Operational Intervention Levels (OIL) during Emergency Exposure Situation" at Mumbai, during June 26 & 27, 2018.
 
The discussion meet involved detailed presentations & talks by experts in the fields of RIA and Emergency Preparedness, from AERB, BARC, IGCAR and NPCIL. About 200 delegates from NPPs, NPCIL-HQ, BHAVINI, BARC, IGCAR and AERB participated in the Discussion Meet and put forth their views/opinions, queries raised were responded.
