October 27th, 2020 — 

The US NRC met virtually with two directorates of the Nuclear Regulatory Authority (NRA), Ghana, on October 27, 2020, to discuss their plans and identify future collaboration activities. The meetings took place under the auspices of the NRC’s Radiation Source Regulatory Partnership (RSRP) and International Regulatory Development Partnership (IRDP) which are supported by NRC contractor AdSTM. The Radiological and Non-Ionizing Radiation Directorate (RNID) regulates sources of ionizing radiation in Ghana while the Nuclear Installations Directorate (NID) regulates the research reactor and plans for the eventual regulation of power reactors. The RNID and NID Directors, their staff, and US NRC and AdSTM representatives discussed future engagement in support of regulatory staff training, emergency preparedness and response, and public awareness activities. The US NRC and AdSTM will continue to consult with NRA about appropriate assistance for their activities.
