Organizations sign agreement to support safe use of nuclear power

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the World Association of Nuclear Operators (WANO) on Sept. 17 signed a new memorandum of understanding (MOU) to increase cooperation between the organizations following the Fukushima Daiichi accident of March 2011. The organizations said the agreement enables the organizations to work more closely together to support the safe and reliable operation of nuclear power plants worldwide, and to enhance information exchange on operating experience and other relevant areas.

The two organizations will also cooperate and coordinate work on their performance indicator programs and work towards exchanging information and support in the event of a serious event at a nuclear power plant or fuel cycle facility. The IAEA and WANO will supply staff to each other's review teams when appropriate.
