FNRBA Consultancy Meeting at IAEA in Vienna, Austria

August 21st, 2016 — 

From 16 to 19 August 2016, John Kinneman of AdSTM, Inc. attended and participated in the Consultancy Meeting of the African Regulatory Body Network (FNRBA) held at IAEA in Vienna, Austria. One focus of this meeting was, “Regulatory Body needs and services provided by FNRBA to Regulatory Bodies.” In addition to discussions on this subject and revising the organization charter, there were meetings of the FNRBA Technical Working Groups (TWG). These meetings completed the development of specific needs from the results of a gap analysis and plans for activities in 2017 to respond to those gaps. The TWGs then reported out to the entire meeting and a spreadsheet of planned actions was prepared and agreed upon. FNRBA asked the donor organizations, including AdSTM, to consider supporting and assisting with the implementation of those actions. Several proposed actions are under consideration.
