The assessment of activities of the nuclear facilities – beside the licensing and inspection tasks – belongs to the most important elements of regulatory oversight. One of the main duties of the Hungarian Atomic Energy Authority is to guarantee nuclear safety, prevent the occurrence of nuclear accidents within the framework of the law and using the resources that the Hungarian citizens provide through their elected representatives. The Hungarian Atomic Energy Authority, as part of its nuclear safety oversight activity, annually evaluates the safety performance of the nuclear facilities and the safety level of the nuclear facilities’ activity. The abstract of the report is available on HAEA’s website.
