Global event focuses on the nuclear supply chain – nuclear policies

September 21, 2021

According to participants at the event at Foratom and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAA), the supply chain needs to achieve greater coordination between licensors, regulators and suppliers in order to meet the needs of buyers. Here are some changes to keep up with COVID-19 epidemic challenges, including remote work and the use of digital platforms.

Management systems for sustainable nuclear supply chain, Held Sept. 7-9, was the 16th joint event organized by Foratom and the IAAA to raise awareness and improve governance by combining all necessary objectives of nuclear facilities and activities. The imaginary event saw how the nuclear industry would control growth – as a global transition to local supply. Fiction, Innovative Technologies as Additional Production Techniques, and Promotional Programs for Small Modules (MRI) – Against the Background of a Global Epidemic.

During the event, IAEA Deputy Director-General and Head of the Nuclear Energy Department, Mikhail Chudakov, said the CVD-19 epidemic has affected the supply chain by introducing long lead times for new construction and some major construction projects. Mobility of contractors, even though the industry is tolerant. In his opening remarks, he said: “Despite the epidemic and all related locks, there were no closures or major disruptions or disruptions to nuclear power plants.”

Various national laws, standards, and regulations highlight the difficulty of harnessing the supply chain of the nuclear supply, as well as the creation of an international framework for the use of high-quality ‘commercial standards’ that are not specifically developed for the nuclear sector. The nuclear industry can manage these developments through additional innovations, such as the process of qualifying materials and components for additional products that comply with nuclear codes and standards.

When deploying SMR for electrical and non-electrical applications, suppliers should be fully aware of all requirements and new guidelines. The industry should be open to new suppliers to the nuclear sector – if necessary, volunteers must be prepared to bring their products to market and stay in the supply chain.

Changes made by companies to deal with the CVD-19 epidemic include remote operation, remote audit and verification, digital sampling of documents, and better risk management. As part of the event, Mark Tannenba, project manager at the USA Institute of Electricity Research, said that 70 percent of respondents plan to make some changes.

The IAEA aims to facilitate industry cooperation by supporting the development of supply chain management systems and supporting well-planned acquisitions by owners and operators. The agency Nuclear supply chain equipment It has also launched a series of webinars, training courses and other events to support countries to improve mutual understanding in collaboration with regulators, technical support organizations, nuclear facility owners and operators, and their suppliers, nuclear institutions and suppliers. Chain issues.
