At the initiative of the Nuclear Regulatory Agency, experts from the Turkish Nuclear Regulatory Authority visited SERAW facilities


Nine experts from the Nuclear Regulatory Authority of the Republic of Turkiye visited on 6 December 2022 facilities of State Enterprise Radioactive Waste to get acquainted, on-the-spot, with Bulgaria’s experience in the field of radioactive waste management. Turkey expressed its interest following the Memorandum of Understanding for cooperation and information exchange in the field of nuclear safety and security signed this year with the Bulgarian Nuclear Regulatory Agency (NRA). The agreements between the two parties provide for another visit of experts from the Turkish regulator at the end of January 2023.

Within the framework of their first visit, the delegation, led by the Vice President of the Turkish regulator, Oğuz Can, and the Chairman of the NRA, Tsanko Bachiyski, visited the Plasma Melting Facility, the Specialized Division for Processing and Interim Storage of Radioactive Waste from NPP operations and Radiana Site where the National Disposal Facility for Low- and Intermediate-Level Radioactive Waste is currently being built.
At the Information Centre for Decommissioning, the achievements and progress of the Enterprise in the field of radioactive waste management were extensively presented to the guests from our southern neighbouring country.
