Experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) recommend that the position of the Swiss Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate (ENSI) should be strengthened. Specifically, it should be possible for final decisions to be taken by ENSI rather than by the Federal Department of Environment, Transport, Energy and Communications (DETEC). In addition, committees should submit their reports directly to ENSI.
ENSI intends to maintain the highest standard of quality with regard to its work. For this reason, a group of experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will carry out a thorough inspection at ENSI between 21 November and 2 December 2011.
