Increasing the Effectiveness of Nuclear Organizations through Advanced Integrated Management Systems

Representatives from the UAE’s regulator, the Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation (FANR), shared their expertise on establishing Integrated Management Systems in nuclear organizations during a five-day consultancy meeting at the IAEA in Vienna, Austria.

On 15 March 2012, the meeting on ‘Implementing Knowledge Management in Integrated Management Systems (IMS) of Nuclear Organizations’, organized by the IAEA Nuclear Energy Department, has finalized inputs of Member States on enhancing Nuclear Knowledge Management (NKM).
Upon the Member States’ experiences, the IAEA develops methodologies and guidance documents for NKM, as well as facilitates nuclear education, training and information exchange.
Accordingly, a draft document on the ‘Implementation of Knowledge Management in Integrated Management Systems’, developed by the IAEA was reviewed by Member States during the meeting.
The UAE recognizes NKM as a vital element of the nuclear sector, and thus benefits from the IAEA’s assistance in maintaining and preserving nuclear knowledge in developing peaceful uses of nuclear technology.
Additionally, UAE supports such network through hosting servers for this purpose in the Khalifa University in Abu Dhabi.
