The Nuclear Energy Agency Committe on the Safety of Nuclear Installations (CSNI) addressed the issue of modifications at the workshop “Modifications at Nuclear Power Plants – Operating Experience, Safety Significance and Role of Human Factors” held at OECD Headquarters in Paris on 6-8 October 2003. This workshop was undertaken as a joint effort of the Working Group on Operating Experience (WGOE) and the Special Experts Group on Human and Organisational Factors (SEGHOF).
55 industry experts, regulators and representatives of technical support organisations from 15 countries attended this event. The workshop programme consisted of plenary and parallel sessions for presentations and discussions. One important part of the workshop was to discuss the findings of the WGOE and SEGHOF surveys of utility and regulatory experience from modifications at the NPPs.
