Consultation at the Radiological and Nuclear Regulatory Authority (ARNR) of Uruguay

October 22nd, 2015 — 

AdSTM conducted a consultation with ARNR from October 20 - 22, 2015 to learn about their regulatory program, and to determine if there are areas of mutual interest where AdSTM could provide assistance in the further development and enhancement of their program. The consultation was performed as a result of conversations between AdSTM and ARNR as the next step of cooperation following the completion of the radioactive source inventory work. The consultation was conducted by Dr. Charles Miller and Mr. Paulo Ferruz, and consisted of a series of discussions with ARNR management and staff. Following the discussions AdSTM and ARNR developed a set of proposed actions where AdSTM could provide support to ARNR over the next year. These included licensing and inspection of linear accelerator technology, well logging practices and radiotherapy and providing advice on the development of transboundary emergency planning and response activities related to nuclear power plant accidents.
