The IAEA International Virtual School on Drafting Safety Regulations is for Regulatory Body professionals to develop/revise national regulations/provisions and enhance their regulation’s drafting potential.

From a broader perspective, Member States could benefit in their capacity building endeavours.  Global safety could also be enhanced, particularly with School Offerings’ participants receiving insights from peers in Member States and applying them promptly or in the future. The IAEA International Virtual School on Drafting Safety Regulations is focused on the development of regulatory provisions/regulations.

Purpose of the course:

The prime objectives of any offering of IAEA International Virtual School on Drafting Safety Regulations include:

  • to support IAEA Member States in drafting/revising national regulations/provisions for radiation, transport, radioactive waste safety, emergency preparedness & response,  and nuclear safety and in developing their regulation’s drafting potential; and

to ensure national regulations take into account to the extent possible, relevant up to date international standards, requirements, guidance and best practices available.

Developed by the IAEA's Division of Radiation, Transport and Waste Safety,

Topics include; Biology and Radiation Effects, Mathematics, Chemistry, Health Physics Fundamentals
