Specialists are also involved in the working groups developing international requirements and rules, exchange the experience and the best practice in the regulation and supervision of the activities in the nuclear energy area.

 

Cooperation with international organisations:

 

 

VATESI specialists participate in various working groups aimed at upgrading the level of the nuclear and radiation safety and the physical security both in the country and in the whole of Europe.  Moreover, we have established cooperation links with the regulatory authorities of the nuclear and radiation safety of the neighbouring and other countries: the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), the State Nuclear Regulatory Inspectorate of Ukraine (SNRIU), the Nuclear Regulation Authority of Japan (NRA) etc.

 

In accordance with the inter-governmental agreements with Denmark, Norway, Latvia and Poland VATESI is obligated to provide information about nuclear events in Lithuania. We also exchange information under the cooperation agreements with the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM).
