(v) Demonstrated ability to document important information and to keep accurate records;

(vi) Demonstrated ability to display confidence and conviction in recommending difficult or unpopular decision to interested parties;

(vii) Demonstrated ability to ensure that the consequences of the decision are clearly understood by all;

(viii) Demonstrated ability to communicate with authority and to maintain composure when challenged, producing explanations calmly and reasonably to achieve results.

V.3.3. Inspection The regulatory body of an embarking State needs to prepare its staff in conducting inspections during the construction phase of a nuclear installation (see Section 3.1.3). Accordingly, the competence requirements are identified well in advance, training programmes for future inspectors are established and implementation is started in Phase 2. The inspections during construction will broadly involve compliance of design as given in IAEA Safety Standards Series No. GS-G-4.1, Format and Content of the Safety Analysis Report for Nuclear Power Plants [13], covering requirements for design and construction of safety

related structures, systems and components, including:

(a) Safety, seismic and quality classifications;

(b) Design bases;

(c) Design features;

(d) Codes and standards;

(e) Seismic and environmental qualification, codes and standards.

The inspections during the construction phase of a nuclear installation include inspection at the construction site as well as inspection during equipment manufacturing. In addition to the inspections of technical areas, one of the main areas of focus for inspection by the regulatory body is the licensee’s management system. Such inspections are conducted to verify that an effective management system is in place to ensure the safety and quality of the construction of the nuclear installation. In certain cases, the regulatory body may not be able to develop fully the specialized knowledge of codes and standards, and it may consider using assistance from outside organizations and consultants — with the necessary competence and expertise — for inspection. However, the regulatory body needs to develop enough competences to understand, and to make its own judgement on, the work of such outside organizations and consultants.

V.3.3.1. Actions in SSG-16 [6]

–  –  –

(a) The regulatory body should develop the inspection programme related to the site authorization process and identify inspections to be conducted during construction (Actions 30 and 31).

–  –  –

(a) The regulatory body should plan and conduct inspections during the licensing process, including siting, construction, commissioning and operation, consistent with the regulatory approach that was selected (Action 34).

(b) The regulatory body should implement its programme for inspection during construction including, as applicable, the design and manufacture of safety related components (Action 37).

V.3.3.2. Related competences

Inspections by the regulatory body involve:

— Establishing inspection policy and strategy;

— Preparing necessary inspection documentation (including inspection programme and plan, inspection procedures, checklists and reports);

— Establishing interface and lines of communication with the licensee for information exchange;

— Identifying skills required for specific inspection and designation of inspection team or assigned individual;

— Conducting inspections;

— Formulating inspection findings and reports;

— Delivering inspection report to the licensee;

— Following up the inspection;

— Determining the need for any enforcement action and initiating enforcement process accordingly.

Competences need to be developed to conduct all of these activities effectively.

Examples of KSAs could be:

(a) Quadrant 1: Competences related to the legal, regulatory and organizational

basis:

(i) Comprehension of the central government’s nuclear laws and decrees as well as other laws and decrees that apply to a licensed nuclear facility;

(ii) Appreciation and comprehension of the applicability to the nuclear industry of the laws and decrees of the local jurisdictions and authorities;

V.3.4. Enforcement Enforcement is a function in which the regulatory body applies sanctions against an operator intended to correct and, as appropriate, to penalize non-compliance with regulations, authorization bases and conditions of an authorization (see Sections 3.1.3 and 4.1). Enforcement function is closely linked with the inspection function as the outcome of inspections generally form the basis for initiating enforcement process. Under the legal framework of various States, certain enforcement powers are conferred to the inspectors of the regulatory body.

V.3.4.1. Actions in SSG-16 [6]

–  –  –

(a) The regulatory body should implement its enforcement programme (Action 37).

V.3.4.2. Related competences Enforcement function of the regulatory body involves establishing enforcement policy and strategy consistent with the legal provisions, developing necessary processes (including enforcement programme and procedures) for taking enforcement actions, establishing interface and lines of communication with other relevant authorities involved in the process (such as in case of prosecution and in some States for imposing civil penalties), taking enforcement actions, and monitoring the effectiveness of enforcement process. Accordingly, competences need to be developed for conducting all these activities effectively.
