Information notice

The French Nuclear Safety Authority (ASN) is organising, with the support of the French Parliamentary Office for the Evaluation of Scientific and Technological Choices (OPECST), an international seminar on post nuclear accidents, i.e., managing the consequences of a nuclear accident.

The seminar will take into account advances by Codirpa1 in the establishment of national policy since the first symposium was held in December 2007. A guide for exiting the emergency phase, issued by Codirpa as part of the commitments of the 2007 seminar, will be presented, in addition to current local feedback from volunteer prefectures and communities.

As part of the seminar, the parliamentary mission lead by OPECST on the safety of nuclear facilities will hold its first public hearing on the morning of 5 May.
