Under the Partnership for Uranium Recovery Regulation (PURR) and the Radiation Sources Regulatory Partnership (RSRP) programs, the USNRC and AdSTM organized and conducted a comprehensive training on Uranium Recovery for the Peruvian Institute of Nuclear Energy (IPEN). Held during the week August 15th-19th, 2016, this activity was supported by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The USNRC, AdSTM and IAEA experts provided a deep review of several aspects related to Uranium Recovery including regulatory framework, lifecycle regulation, waste disposal, technical review of the licensing process, environmental and dose modeling, facility decommissioning, regulatory/operators’ qualifications and financial assurance. The experts also shared interesting information on experiences and learned lessons in different parts of the world where Uranium Recovery has been practiced for many years.
From the USNRC, John Saxton and from AdSTM, Daniel Gillen and Mario Rodriguez represented the RSRP program.
