  • KINS has shared its views and experiences on all essential aspects of safety regulation with international peers through bilateral channels by continually expanding its international outreach to enhance bilateral cooperation in the field of nuclear safety. Currently, KINS has close cooperative partnerships through bilateral agreements and MOUs with 18 organizations of 13 countries. Such agreements typically set forth the cooperation areas as follows:
    • regulatory review, safety assessment, safety inspection, review and assessment of licenses, and radiation protection with respect to radiological and nuclear facilities;
    • development of legislation, regulations, regulatory codes, standards, criteria and guidelines in connection with nuclear and radiation safety;
    • radiological emergency preparedness;
    • exchange of regulatory advisers, expert technicians, officers, fellows and laboratory services;
    • joint scientific conferences, symposiums, training courses, seminars, and workshops;
    • development of certification programs for inspectors on nuclear and radiation safety; and
    • other fields as may be jointly agreed decided by the Parties
  • The country considering embarking on a nuclear program should establish the nuclear safety infrastructure as the set of institutional, organizational, and technical elements and conditions. KINS developed a regulatory advisory service package called IRISS (Integrated Regulatory Infrastructure Support Service) for the countries considering a new nuclear power program with little or no relevant experiences.
  • IRISS is to provide the nuclear newcomers with guidance and consultation on the establishment of a regulatory infrastructure and build up competency of a regulatory body. The integrated service package, which was designed in compliance with the IAEA Safety fundamentals, requirements, and guides, is expected to contribute to establishment of a robust regulatory infrastructure as well as a global nuclear safety regime.
  • Making use of the IRISS, KINS has provided such regulatory technologies as legal/regulatory framework, regulatory requirements/standards, education/training programs, and safety assessment/consult through regulatory cooperation with the Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation (FANR), UAE and the Jordan Nuclear Regulatory Commission (JNRC), Jordan.
