About Inside WANO

Inside WANO is the magazine of the World Association of Nuclear Operators

The first issue of Inside WANO was published in November 1993

Established in 1993, Inside WANO features the latest news in nuclear safety including articles from WANO member organisations and utilities; stories from individuals within the industry; and information about the work of WANO’s regional centres in Atlanta, Moscow, Paris and Tokyo; offices in London and Shanghai; and its impact globally.

The launch of the Inside WANO website in May 2014 – WANO’s 25 year anniversary – along with a new e-newsletter, means that people at all levels within the industry can sign up to receive the publication; from the CEOs of WANO members to students looking toward a future in nuclear energy.

WANO’s mission is “To maximise the safety and reliability of nuclear power plants worldwide by working together to assess, benchmark and improve performance through mutual support, exchange of information and emulation of best practices”; and moving Inside WANO onto a more accessible platform is just one more step towards sharing of information that will strengthen the safety culture of our industry.

We hope you enjoy our publication.
History of Inside WANO

"There are still too many people who need to know about WANO but who do not know enough to benefit or to contribute effectively. That is why the WANO Governing Board decided to launch this new WANO-wide newsletter. Inside WANO aims to strengthen communication amongst power plant operators by informing them about current WANO activities and their results… I hope that utilities will circulate copies of Inside WANO to all staff having responsibility for operational safety and reliability."

 – Remy Carle, WANO Chairman 1993-1997

The above quote is taken from the very first issue of Inside WANO, published in November 1993, written in the introduction from Remy Carle who was the WANO Chairman at that time.

Inside WANO has been a powerful tool over the last two decades, bringing relevant and interesting information from within the industry, sharing best and next practice and news from WANO itself, and keeping nuclear safety at the forefront of the minds of our readers.

Moving Inside WANO online in 2014, with a brand new website and e-newsletter, was a significant milestone in WANO's history. Our goal is to reach people at all levels, in every corner of every nuclear organisation and utility; and in a world where technology is prominent, this was an exciting and positive step towards reaching our goal.
