External Advisors Meeting

The NRA policy is, acknowledging the importance of proactively incorporating the latest overseas knowledge concerning the safety of the use of nuclear energy, to invite foreign experts from universities, research institutes and private sectors, who have specialized knowledge and experiences, to provide opinions on its regulation. According to the policy, the NRA appoints experienced foreign experts as “External Advisors” for NRA Commission to obtain advice on issues of nuclear regulation. Since December 2012, external advisors meetings have been held periodically between the NRA Commission members and External Advisors to deliver advice on topics of each meeting through discussion.
