Massimo Garibaba, Director General of the European Commission’s Energy Directorate, welcomed the new agreement and said: “We look forward to further cooperation in nuclear security, including peer review missions.

One of the major services of the IAAF is the peer review of nuclear safety and security practices in countries. The EU supports the development of peer review services such as the Integrated Monitoring Service (IRRS) and the Integrated Assessment Service (ARTEMIS). In return, these assessments have enabled EU countries to fulfill their obligations under the EU’s Nuclear Safety and Waste Directive. Since 2013, 116 IRRS missions and 12 ARTEMIS missions have been conducted to evaluate control systems and radioactive waste and to evaluate fuel management.
