CITS visits nuclear power plant in Bulgaria with IAEA

The group briefed the management of the plant on assessing nuclear security culture. Bulgaria is the second country (after Indonesia) to volunteer a self-assessment project before the IAEA’s technical guidance for self-assessment is released in 2014.

The guidance was drafted by a group of nuclear security experts, with active involvement of CITS staff. The pilot project at Kozloduy is designed to put the methodology to test at a major nuclear power plant to further improve it before finalization and publication. The visit in October will be followed by several others to assist in the self-assessment conduct and data interpretation.
