3.2.2 REVIEW AND ASSESSMENT FOR RESEARCH REACTORS

The review and assessment process for Research Reactors is essentially the same as that for of Nuclear Power Plants, including planning, identification of codes standards and acceptance criteria, and conduct of regulatory reviews.
3.2.3 REVIEW AND ASSESSMENT FOR WASTE MANAGEMENT FACILITIES

PNRA has the experience of review and assessment of licensee’s submissions related to predisposal management of radioactive waste. Because a disposal facility has not been constructed in Pakistan, PNRA has no experience in the area of review and assessment of a national disposal facility.
