Construction Inspection Workshop with Jordan Nuclear Regulatory Commission

September 12th, 2013 — 

From September 8 – 12, 2013, Bill Bateman and Mel Fields of AdSTM provided training to Jordan Nuclear Regulatory Commission (JNRC) staff on inspection techniques for use during the construction of the Jordan Research Test Reactor. The AdSTM instructors discussed attributes that lead to effective inspections (e.g., qualified inspectors and adequate inspection procedures) and how to develop a construction inspection program. During the week-long workshop, the instructors assisted JNRC staff in developing inspection procedure and inspection report formats that met the needs of their regulatory framework. Included in the workshop was a visit to the construction site located at the Jordan University of Science and Technology at Irbid, about 45 miles north of Amman.
