Nordisk Sikkerhet participates in IAEA expert mission to Belarus
Published: 16 October 2017
Pavel Tishakov, an expert from Nordisk Sikkerhet, visited the Republic of Belarus on 10–16 September as an adviser in the preparation for a national exercise on nuclear or radiological emergencies. With Belarus’ first nuclear power plant set to come online in 2019, the need to hold emergency preparedness exercises, which test the readiness of local and national emergency response capabilities in the event of a nuclear or radiological accident, is paramount.
During the IAEA expert mission, meetings were held with the various government agencies and emergency responders who will be participating in the upcoming exercise. Nordisk Sikkerhet’s previous experience and familiarity with similar exercises were shared, and the groundwork was laid for the further planning, preparation and eventual conduct of the emergency preparedness and response exercise in Belarus.
The exercise itself is planned to be held on 18-19 October 2017.
