IAEA supports national policy for safety & security

16 May 2019

The recently launched second phase of the IAEA Regulatory Infrastructure Development Project (RIDP) in Latin America and the Caribbean aims to help 14 countries strengthen national regulatory infrastructure for radiation safety and nuclear security, almost twice as many as the first phase in 2017.

Project activities will involve different IAEA resources, including expert missions, regional and national training and advisory missions. The activities will offer the countries taking part support in areas related to the national policy for safety and security, safety and security regulatory framework, authorization and inspection, physical protection and management systems.

The new project complements assistance provided by the IAEA through national and regional technical cooperation projects to strengthen regulatory infrastructure for radiation safety.

The new phase will benefit from recently introduced activities targeting young regulators, integrated management systems, and skills in authorization and inspection.
