The State Scientific and Technical Center for Nuclear and Radiation Safety (SSTC NRS) is a TSO organization of the Ukrainian regulatory body State Nuclear Regulatory Inspectorate of Ukraine (SNRIU).
SSTC NRS provides scientific, analytical, technical, informational, methodological, engineering, consultative, and expert support of activities and decision making of SNRIU at all stages of the life cycle of nuclear facilities, radioactive waste management facilities and other radiation sources.
SSTC NRS performs:
• development of draft regulations to establish regulatory criteria and requirements for safe management of radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel;
• research activities – conducting applied and analytical research using up-to-date computer codes to identify ways to address issues in safety regulation and implementation of advanced methodologies for analysis and safety assessment of radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel management facilities (research in the fields of neutron-physical processes, thermal conditions, strength and seismic resistance, radiation protection, emergency processes, long-term storage/disposal safety);
• professional training of specialists and experts in the areas of radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel safe management and radiation monitoring;
• radiological measurements, detection, and analysis of potential radiological and nuclear threats using RanidSONNI Radiation Reconnaissance Vehicle (Mobile Radiological Laboratory).
The SSTC NRS infrastructures are available for trainings and internships.
