Mumbai: Officials from the French atomic regulatory body will be arriving on 8 May for a three-day visit to interact with their Indian counterparts on nuclear reactor safety issues.
The French Atomic Regulatory Commission (ASN) officials’ annual meeting with Indian Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) members is a part of the bilateral agreement on nuclear safety issues, for which the five-year contract was signed last year, chairman of AERB, S K Sharma said on 7 May.
A similar meeting with the Russian regulator will be held in the coming weeks but the date is yet to be finalised, the AERB chief said.
Sharma also said there will be a meeting of countries using VVER-type Russian reactors, in Dubna (Russia) in July. Regulators from India, China and Iran among others will attend the meet, he added.
