Visit of Jordanian Experts at the HAEA


On 24-25th of July, 2017 Hungarian Atomic Energy Authority received a five-member dele-gation from Jordan. The scientific visit was organized by ENCO (an independent expert company involved in radioactive waste management). The Jordanian nuclear and envi-ronmental protection specialists came to Hungary to gain knowledge of radioactive waste management and to receive information from a country that has wide experience in this field.

In accordance with the goal of the scientific visit and ENCO’s request, the HAEA elaborated a two days programme for the Jordan delegation. Presentations were held in the following topics: Hungary’s National Policy and Programme for Radioactive Waste and Spent Nuclear Fuel Management, the legal framework and the regulatory authority system, licensing and inspection processes at the Authority, organization of public hearings and international cooperation for radioactive waste management.

After the interactive presentations, Jordanian experts had the opportunity to discuss the topics with the experts of the HAEA in detail.

During the second half of the week, the delegation visited the facilities of PURAM (the Spent Fuel Interim Storage, the National Radioactive Waste Repository and the Radioactive Waste Treatment and Disposal Facility).
