From June 26th through the 30th Dr. Majd Hawwari, a commissioner of the Energy and Minerals Regulatory Commission (EMRC) of Jordan visited KINS in order to review the progress of regulatory technology support project regarding the permit of Jordan Research and Training Reactor (JRTR).
Through the meeting, Dr. Majd Hawwari requested various regulatory support in relation to acquisition of permits, authorization status, acquisition, pilot operation testing, inspection plans, JRTR operators and operation supervisors, and licensing test, and also discussed effective implementation plans.
The KINS’s technical consultation is based on a special agreement with EMRC entered into in May 2011. Since then, KINS has been supporting the regulatory technologies and human resources necessary for the construction and operation permit of JRTR. It has also been participating in the safety review, pre-service inspection, QA inspection, pilot operation test, and inspection as well as the competency improvement training program and OJT of the regulatory staff.
