Synopsis:

The course is focused on examples of application of Czech nuclear legislation in practice, particularly in safe operation of nuclear power plants, research reactors and radioactive materials. The introductory lectures deal with legislative framework for peaceful use of nuclear energy in the Czech Republic; structure and responsibilities of national regulatory body; and relation of Czech nuclear legislation to international recommendations and international organisations (such as IAEA, EURATOM, WENRA). The second part of the course is dedicated to case studies of application of Czech nuclear legislative in practice. Case studies reflect real legislative practices and current situation in safe operation of nuclear power plants, research reactors and radioactive materials. Case studies are particularly focused on sitting and construction of nuclear installations; commissioning, operation and decommissioning of nuclear installations; operation of sites with radioactive sources and radioactive materials; categorisation of radiation laboratories (class III or IV), handling with nuclear materials such as import and export; transport of radioactive and nuclear materials; etc. The course is organised in collaboration with experts from Czech national regulatory body.
