The Technical Forum on Nuclear Power Plants (TFK) is a platform to facilitate transparent and in-depth discussion of technical safety issues related to the operation of nuclear power plants. Questions discussed in the TFK may be submitted by the general public and also by members of the Forum. The questions and answers are intended to […]
In this year’s report, ENSI provides information on the overall status of implementation of the CNS in Switzerland, as well as other key issues that have gained in importance since the Fukushima accident.
In this 9th Annual Report, ENSI focusses on radiological protection in Swiss nuclear facilities. The average individual dose has changed little compared with previous years. At 0.7 mSv, it is significantly below the limit both for persons exposed to radiation during their work (20 mSv) and the annual average rate of exposure for the population […]
There were no incidents in Swiss nuclear power plants in 2012 that could have had a detrimental effect on the safety of people and the environment. This is evident from an evaluation the results of over 400 inspections, both unannounced and announced, together with operating data and event notifications from plant operators.
This Research and Experience Report describes and rates the findings of the regulatory research into safety, specific instructive events from nuclear facilities abroad, news regarding the international cooperation as well as current changes and developments in underlying surveillance principles in 2012.
The Fukushima action plans serve the purpose of ensuring transparency as regards processing of the identified points until they are implemented. They also provide an instrument for the planning of supervisory work and the assessment of new knowledge gained from the Fukushima accident.
The Swiss Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate (ENSI) submitted its Stress Test status report to the EU at the end of 2012. The report documents how Switzerland is implementing the recommendations based on last year’s ENSREG Peer Review. A new Swiss Fukushima Action Plan will be released in February 2013. ENSI submitted its status report on […]
Developments in the technical and legal basis of nuclear oversight Aware of its responsibilities in the surveillance of nuclear facilities, ENSI is required to stay abreast of the latest developments in science and technology. Hence, it supports and coordinates research into safety the results of which feed often directly into the ENSI Guidelines and specific […]
This Annual Report of ENSI deals solely with radiological protection in nuclear facilities in Switzerland: Section A covers both exposure rates for staff and individual job rates whereas Section B deals with releases from nuclear facilities and the monitoring of radioactivity in their immediate vicinity. Compared with previous years, there was little change in either […]
