WANO members are affiliated with one or more regional centre (Atlanta, Moscow, Paris and Tokyo) based on the centre’s location or particular expertise. In addition to tailored support from the regional centres, all members have access to the following resources:
WANO member website: A comprehensive, member-only archive of reports and information about nuclear plant safety across the world.
Performance Analysis: Through the website, members have access to information about events that have occurred at other plants. Information sharing between members allows plants to learn from each other’s mistakes and ensure they are not repeated elsewhere. For more information, visit the Performance Analysis programme.
Peer Review: Each member receives a peer review every four years. Using an international team made up of both WANO and industry experts, peer review teams identify areas for improvement, which are outlined in a report presented to the member’s senior management. Good practices and strengths are also identified and shared with other members. For more information, visit the Peer Review programme.
Member Support: WANO also offers its members support in targeting specific issues or problems. These tools include Guidelines and Good Practices, and Member Support Missions. For more information, visit the Member Support programme.
Training & Development: Plant safety starts with plant staff. This programme focuses on workshops, conferences, seminars, expert meetings and training courses that help develop professionals in the nuclear industry. For more information, visit the Training & Development programme.
