    How the insurance market works: a buyer’s primer

    Practical Guidance for Insurance Buyers Part One:

    Insurance can be complex, and most organisations use brokers and advisors to help simplify the process. As helpful as that can be, the outlook and objectives of intermediaries can vary and may be influenced by different incentives and remuneration mechanisms.

    This course is designed to help non-insurance specialists achieve better outcomes when purchasing business and commercial insurance.

    Radioactive Waste and Spent Nuclear Fuel Management Systems for Nuclear Newcomer Countries

    This series of five specialised workshops is designed for personnel in relevant organisations within countries that are intending to establish nuclear energy programmes.

    The training utilises the IAEA’s Milestones approach for developing a national infrastructure for nuclear power and uses the framework as a central reference point to evaluate the development of policies, strategy, infrastructure, organisations, financing and funding mechanisms.

    Course

    Workshop 1: Development of policies and strategies for radioactive waste and spent fuel management

    This workshop will look at the development of policies and strategies for spent fuel management, radioactive waste management, decommissioning, extraction industries, and industrial / medical arisings. It will be tailored as appropriate to the requirements of the party concerned utilising IAEA and NEA guidance, and international best practice.

    At the end of the workshop delegates will have developed an understanding of what policy is, how it is established and what it should cover. Similarly, delegates will understand how policy is implemented through strategy development and the competences required to deliver this.

    Course

    Workshop 2: Costing and financing

    This workshop will examine the basic principles of costing long term liabilities such that adequate financing will be available to deal with them as and when required. The liabilities in question are spent fuel storage, decommissioning and near surface and geological disposal.

    The workshop will consider the various cost estimation methods and factors affecting costs in developing lifetime plans. It will then go on to describe the basic principles of funding schemes, including contribution mechanisms, trust funds and investment strategies; the importance of decommissioning plans for new-build will be emphasised. Examples of funding mechanisms from various countries will be provided.

    Course

    Workshop 3: Radioactive waste and spent fuel management - organisational aspects

    Article 19 of the Joint Convention on the safety of spent fuel management and the safety of radioactive waste management requires the legislative and regulatory framework (of a country) should provide for ‘a clear allocation of responsibilities of the bodies involved in the different steps of spent fuel and of radioactive waste management’.

    This workshop will consider the various organisations involved in a nuclear power programme and their interrelationships, and look at various national examples. It will in particular consider the roles and responsibilities of waste management organisations (WMOs).

    Course

    Workshop 4: Repository development

    This workshop will consider repository development in more detail. It will look at the options available for near-surface (or equivalent) and deep repositories, the timings associated with each and the long-term requirements. Siting will be covered along with stakeholder engagement. National examples will be presented and discussed.

    The learning objectives here are to gain an understanding of the siting and design of near-surface facilities for lower activity wastes, and the siting and design of deep geological repositories. The timings of each set against the nuclear power programme will be considered and linked to the financing aspects. An appreciation of stakeholder engagement will also be achieved.

    Workshop 5: Course wrap-up

    This final workshop provides a high-level summary of the previous four workshops and facilitates a review discussion between the delegates.
