The CNRA-MDEP workshop was held at the NEA Headquarters in Boulogne-Billancourt (France) on 5-6 November 2018 on the subject of nuclear supply chain management activities. The following topics were selected to be addressed, in addition to an opening plenary session, within the structure of six sessions:
global supply chain oversight challenges;
counterfeit, fraudulent and suspect items (CFSIs): lessons learnt;
advancing early integration of safety culture in the supply chain;
regulatory approaches for equipment qualification and commercial-grade dedication;
enhancing international co-operation to prepare for new technologies and emerging challenges;
panel discussion session: international regulatory activities in the oversight of the global nuclear supply chain
The recommendations and conclusions from the workshop have been compiled in the present report. The proceedings will serve to inform ongoing activities of the MDEP VICWG and provide the basis for the CNRA to decide on future activities or tasks, as necessary.
