Finnish nuclear safety and security measures presented at the UN

The Finnish and Canadian missions in Geneva organized a side event to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) 2nd Preparatory Committee meeting on 2 May 2013 about Nuclear Safety, Safeguards and Security when designing new reactors. The Finnish Ambassador Ms Päivi Kairamo chaired the event, and the Section Head Ms Elina Martikka from the Finnish Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (STUK) presented safety and security measures in Finnish nuclear power plants. Mr Philip Webster, Counsellor of Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, presented Canadian practices on Safety, Security and Safeguards.

”The 3S – Safeguards, Safety and Security – are realized the best when they are considered interdependent and the implementation is well coordinated under the roof of one authority”, said Mrs. Martikka. Finland constantly educates staff on IAEA safeguards, and in Finland, STUK always participates in IAEA inspections at different power plants, which guarantees successful and smooth inspection rounds.
