The objective of the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) Working Group on Fuel Cycle Safety (WGFCS) is to advance the understanding for both regulators and operators of relevant aspects of fuel cycle safety in member countries.
On 5-7 October 2009, the NEA/WGFCS organised a workshop on ageing management of fuel cycle facilities (FCFs). This workshop brought together 40 participants from 8 countries during two and half days of exchange and discussions. During the workshop conclusions, participants pointed out the need for the WGFCS to continue working on ageing management for FCFs and to prepare a dedicated technical opinion paper. This document represents the outcome of that task.
