The “Milestones” approach toward the development of a national infrastructure for Nuclear Power (as described in IAEA Nuclear Energy Series No. NG-G-3.1) will be used as the foundation for the information provided through this meeting. The next section of this information sheet describes how this knowledge/information is to be transferred through this meeting. NATURE OF THE MEETING The “Milestones approach” will be explained in a comprehensive manner, for those from national position, nuclear safety to procurement. This introduction will focus on the topics, which future leaders should understand and manage, and also the subsequent visit to ROK’s facilities will furhter give the participants practical experineces of Korea, how they handled or are handling the difficutlies or challenges. This meeting will include visits to: the corporate office of the NPP operating organization, an engineering company, an education institute and training center, research organizations, an operating NPP, an NPP under construction, a heavy component manufacturing company, government ministries, and the nuclear safety regulatory body. The participants in this meeting will be accompanied by mentors who recently retired or are planning to retire from senior NPP managers in the ROK. ROK mentors will generally be assigned two participants to work with on an individual basis during the meeting. The mentors will see and hear the same information at each of these facilities that the participants do. The mentors will help the participants to achieve the following: 1. Appreciate the need for high standards for a NP programme regarding safety, quality, environmental protection, ethics and social responsibility. 2. Identify how managers and supervisors encourage and welcome the reporting by other individuals of potential safety concerns, incidents and near-misses, and accident precursors. 3. Ensure that contractors for the NPP project give a priority to safety and quality. 4. Appreciate that all work that is to be done is planned and authorized before it is commenced, and that work should be accomplished under suitably controlled conditions by technically competent individuals using technical standards, instructions, procedures or other appropriate documents. 5. Hold managers responsible for ensuring that individuals working under their supervision have been provided with the necessary training, resources and direction. 6. Establish specific requirements for qualification for critical or unique jobs if highly technical, specialized skills are necessary or if the job has a potential impact on safety and quality, and if it is necessary to ensure that the individual is competent prior to performing the task. 7. Recognize that when launching a plan for establishing a new nuclear programme, it is important to begin stakeholder participation early so that people have a legitimate opportunity to participate in the process and shape the outcome. Meaningful participation by stakeholders requires that such stakeholders be given an opportunity to convey their issues and concerns regarding risk and related questions and to obtain answers. When mentors walk through Korea nuclear industry facilities, they will take the opportunity to point out what they do regarding each of the points above. When they escort the participants to visits to supplier or manufacturer facilities, they will demonstrate what they look at to ensure themselves that the programme will be successful and sustainable including securing manpower, localization policy, regulatory system, and integration of diverse knowledge and experience.
