MOSCOW, March 13. /ITAR-TASS/. A delegation of the Russian Federal Environmental, Insdutrial and Nuclear Supervision Service of Russia (Rostekhnadzor) from March 11 to 13 participated in a conference annually organized by the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the Russian agency said on Thursday. It was the 26th conference.
Rostekhnadzor's deputy head Alexei Ferapontov told the forum about latest achievements and objectives of the Russian nuclear supervision service and answered questions, including about Russian assistance in regulation to countries where nuclear power plants are under construction with Russian projects and about licensing of Russian small and medium-capacity reactors.
The forum discussed preparations to sign an interdepartmental agreement on cooperation to assist third countries in the development of systems of safety regulation in the use of atomic energy, the Russian agency said.
The Russian delegation also met with colleagues from the Jordanian nuclear regulatory commission. They agreed to hold a meeting in Moscow to prepare a draft bilateral agreement on cooperation to create a legal basis to assist Jordanian specialists to develop nuclear and radiation safety regulatory infrastructure.
Ferapontov met with US Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman Allison Macfarlane and Commissioner William Ostendorff to exchange information about objectives to regulate safety in construction of NPPs, taking into consideration national atomic energy development programs.
The Russian delegation also met with the president of the 6th review meeting of the Nuclear Safety Convention, Andre-Claude Lacoste, and the delegation of the French regulatory body to discuss a program of joint actions for this year.
