Regional Workshop on the Fundamentals of Inspection Workshop – September 2014 in Indonesia

Domestic inspections play an important role in strengthening the national oversight of nuclear and radiological assets and also support implementation of international safeguards. By conducting domestic safeguards inspections, a State Authority can help meet national requirements and enable national stakeholders to prepare for International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspections and resolve safeguards issues in advance, thereby saving valuable time and resources.

September 8-12 2014, APSN, with support from the Indonesia Nuclear Energy Regulatory Agency (BAPETEN) and the U.S. Department of Energy – National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE/NNSA), conducted a “Regional Workshop on the Fundamentals of Domestic Inspection” in Jakarta, Indonesia. Twenty-five participants from Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Vietnam, and the Philippines attended the course. Representatives from the International Atomic Energy Agency, Japan (JNRA, JAEA) and Korea (KINAC) also made presentations and assisted with the workshop implementation. The workshop was the first training in the area of domestic safeguards inspections in the Southeast Asia region.

The five-day training course was designed to help participants become familiar with modern inspection techniques, as well as to serve as a training ground to practice techniques under the supervision of experienced inspectors. The course included topics on: Regulatory Basis for Inspection, Quality Management Systems, Role of Domestic Inspections in Supporting IAEA Inspections, Data Collection Methods and Inspection Data Analysis, Inspection Planning, Conducting and Documenting an inspection, and Verification and Validation of corrective action plans.
