This publication is part of a series that summarizes important information relating to uranium supply and demand and incorporates data from previous publications, as well as from the International Uranium Resources Evaluation Project (IUREP), and other publicly available information and government data which have been collected and reviewed by experts. This volume focuses on South-east Asia, the Pacific, and East Asia and provides a comprehensive reference source for uranium geology, exploration, resources, production and related activities in 18 countries. It will be useful to decision makers at all levels, including but not limited to, government officers in energy and mineral resource fields, exploration companies, geologists, geological surveys, energy utilities, universities, research institutions and natural resource authorities.
This publication establishes requirements and provides criteria for ensuring safety in site evaluation for nuclear installations. The Safety Guides on site evaluation listed in the references section provide recommendations on how to meet the requirements established in this publication. A review of Safety Requirements publications was commenced in 2011 following the accident in the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan. The review revealed no significant areas of weakness and resulted in just a small set of amendments to strengthen the requirements and facilitate their implementation, which are contained in the present publication.
A quality management system (QMS) can be expressed as the organizational structure or processes, procedures and resources needed to implement quality management. Such a system plays an important role in the sustainable training and certification of non-destructive testing (NDT), resulting in better management, technical competence, worldwide recognition and harmonization and competitiveness. The guidelines presented in this publication support developers and provide information on the part NDT plays in overall quality assurance (QA) programmes.
The purpose of this publication is to present the results of a review of accidents in industrial radiography which have either been reported to regulatory authorities or to professional associations, or been published in scientific journals. Use of ionizing radiation in medicine, industry and research for technical development continues to increase throughout the world. Although this industry has a good safety record, there is a potential for accidents with serious consequences to human health because of the high dose rates produced by these sources. Five fatal accidents occurred between 1975 and 1994. Such accidents have prompted the present review, carried out by a team of manufacturers, regulatory authorities and operating organizations. Having closely looked at the circumstances of each accident, the apparent deficiencies in design, safety and regulatory systems, and personnel performance, the team made a number of recommendations. The findings of extensive research pertaining to the lessons that can be learned from irradiation accidents are presented.
This Safety Report is a review of a large number of events that may serve as a checklist against which to test the vulnerability of a facility to potential accidents, and to provide a basis for improving safety in the use of radiation in medical applications. Furthermore, it is intended to encourage the development of a questioning and learning attitude, the adoption of measures for the prevention of accidents, and the preparation for the mitigation of the consequences of accidents, if they occur.
The Government and authorities in Brazil were faced with a tragic accident in Goiania resulting from the misuse of a strongly radioactive medical teletherapy source not under radiation protection surveillance. The present report is divided into four parts: a chronology of destruction of the source, discovery of the accident and initial response; a description of the human consequences and the dosimetry and treatment of seriously exposed and contaminated persons; an account of the assessment of the environmental contamination and the remedial actions taken; and observations and recommendations. Appendices and annexes give an assessment of the effectiveness of international co-operation in the emergency response, and provide further information on: public communications; radiological survey equipment; guidelines for the discharge of patients; radiological protection; chemical decontamination; and the lessons learned.
This report provides guidance on the planning for decommissioning and on the provision of relevant features at the design and construction stages of nuclear power plants. Most of the information presented is equally applicable, however, to planning and implementing the decommissioning of research reactors and prototype reactors. The report will be useful in the context of backfitting and refurbishment of existing facilities.
Proceedings of a symposium jointly organized with OECD/NEA, Sorrento, Italy, 21-25 March 1988. The contents of the pro- ceedings represent a wide spectrum of topics and should provide an understanding of the issue of beyond the design basis accidents, quite frequently called 'severe accidents'. The papers give an overview of different national approaches, with the overall emphasis on preventive, mitigative and accident management measures. The most important outcome of the symposium was a clear awareness of accident management questions which were among the most controversial issues discussed.
