Nuclear Safety Initiatives

This chapter considers nuclear safety initiatives relating to the eight Arctic countries. However, as many of the practices that impact upon or present a hazard to the Arctic environment are sited in northwest Russia, the emphasis of this chapter is on that region. Safety initiatives mostly relate to safety assessments of nuclear installations, particularly nuclear power plants (NPPs); other initiatives address regulatory improvements, arrangements for physical protection, and nuclear safeguards.
