This report was jointly prepared by the Working Group on Public Communication of NuclearRegulatory organisation of the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) Committee on Nuclear Regulatory Activities (CNRA) and by the Working Group on Transparency Activities (WGTA) of the European Nuclear Safety Regulators Expert Group (ENSREG).
As a follow-up of the 2007 Workshop, the WGPC surveyed, in cooperation with ENSREG/WGTA, member countries in early 2009 on their transparency practices. Eighteen countries (see Appendix 4 for full list) responded to the survey, drawing on their own expert knowledge and regulatory experience for their response. The purpose of this document is to report on the survey's key findings and to illustrate the practices of Nuclear Regulatory Organisations (NRO) in the area of transparency. The document, in particular, draws out those areas of common practice amongst the different countries.
The questions from the various sections of the survey are provided in appendix 1.
