VIENNA, September 14. /TASS/. Russia’s nuclear power concern Rosatom and the International Atomic Energy Agency have signed practical agreements on cooperation in radiation safety. The ceremony took place on the sidelines of the 59th session of the IAEA General Conference.
IAEA Deputy Director-General, head of the Department of Nuclear Safety and Security Denis Flory and Rosatom’s Deputy CEO Vyacheslav Pershukov put their signatures to the document.
"By signing this arrangement Russia has reaffirmed once again its world leadership in using nuclear power," Pershukov said. "Russia will become the world’s first country to have implemented its risk approach to assessing the radiation effects on personnel. We are determined to spread our experience to the countries which have been cooperating with us in their own civilian nuclear power programs."
The just-signed agreement envisages projects for the evaluation and management of radiation risks for the health of nuclear power industry personnel. The works under the project, extended over three years, will be carried out under the supervision of Rosatom inspectors and specialists from Russia’s Health Service Ministry.
Rosatom will conduct this research at its own expense.
The project is to produce a special methodology for evaluating the individual radiation risks for Russian nuclear power industry employees on the basis of personal exposures. Russia will draft its own code for radiation risks management in planned exposure situations.
