general note
"NEA No. 6256."
"Organised in collaboration with the Japan Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency and the Japan Nuclear Energy Safety Organisation."
One of the main missions of nuclear regulators is to protect the public, and this cannot be completely achieved without public confidence. The more a regulatory process is transparent, the more such confidence will grow. Despite important cultural differences across countries, a number of common features characterize media and public expectations regarding any activity with an associated risk. This workshop identified a common understanding of transparency and main stakeholders' expectations together with a number of conditions and practices aimed at improving the transparency of nuclear regulatory activities.--Publisher's description.
