RSRP Meets with Columbian Regulator to Discuss the Program

February 8th, 2012 — 

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (USNRC), met with its counterpart Colombian nuclear regulatory organization, the Autoridad Nuclear within the Ministry of Mines and Energy, on February 6-7, 2012. The objective of this meeting was to define activities with which the USNRC could assist the Colombian regulator, activities which the Colombian authority identified as priorities. A Memorandum of Meeting was developed at the end of the second day which noted three general areas for joint work: first, to provide review and comment on Colombian safety and security regulations and requirements as they update their regulatory program; second, to provide a package of training for Colombian regulatory staff to include physical protection as well as inspection activities; and third, to work with the Colombian authorities on their registry for radiological materials, which they would like to make web-based.
