Serpong, Indonesia


WS Participants

The FNCA 2015 Workshop on Radiation Safety and Radioactive Waste Management (RS&RWM) was held from November 17 to 19 2015, in Serpong, Indonesia. This workshop was hosted by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) of Japan and the National Nuclear Energy Agency of Indonesia (BATAN). Seventeen researchers and experts from Bangladesh, China, Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Mongolia, Thailand and Vietnam participated in the workshop.
On the first day, member countries gave a country report on nuclear/radiological emergency preparedness and response detailing policy, regulatory framework and legislation, emergency classes and condition, participating organization, concept of operation such as mitigation and prevention, emergency preparedness, emergency response and emergency rehabilitation and restoration, and other related activities such as human capacity building and communication and public relation.
Participants then reported progress of their consolidated report on nuclear/radiological emergency preparedness and response and agreed to complete their first compiled draft by the end of March 2016.

The 2015 RS&RWM Workshop

An open seminar on countermeasures for nuclear/radiological emergency at nuclear facilities was held at BATAN Serpong on 18 November. The opening remarks were made by Prof Toshiso Kosako, Emeritus Professor, The University of Tokyo and Mr Suryantoro, Head, Center for Radioactive Waste Technology (CRWT), BATAN. Eight presentations were provided on each topic of countermeasures for nuclear/radiological emergency at nuclear facilities in Bangladesh, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, and Thailand. Japanese participants gave a presentation on overview and recent progress of FNCA, countermeasures under Fukushima Daiichi NPP accident, and human resource development programs of Japan for nuclear/radiological emergency. A panel discussion was held concerning the topics of 1) sharing information on lessons learned from nuclear/radiological accident, 2) countermeasures for external events(natural disaster etc.), and 3)human resources development.

Open Seminar

A technical visit to the BATAN Serpong was conducted on the afternoon of 18 November 2015. Participants visited the GA. Siwabessy Research Reactor, which is a 30 MW multipurpose reactor and reached the first criticality in 1987 and the Center for Radioactive Waste Technology (CRWT), which was established as a centralized radioactive waste management facility of Indonesia in 1989. They observed evaporation system, compaction system, incineration system, and cementation system.
On the last day of the workshop, participants had a discussion on status, plans and challenges of low/Intermediate level waste disposal facilities/long term storage facilities. At the wrap up session, participants exchanged their opinions on subjects that they are interested in the field of RS&RWM and activities to be conducted in the near future.

He cordially welcomed all the participants to Indonesia, and reminisced about the days that he formally was an Indonesian leader of this project. He also emphasized four important things for BATAN to consider: 1) how to maintain and develop nuclear facilities of BATAN, 2) how to promote radiation safety and safety culture, 3) how to manage radioactive waste management involving stakeholders, and 4) how to improve nuclear energy program using the above-mentioned three points.

Mr Tomoaki Wada, FNCA Coordinator of Japan gave opening remarks. He expressed sincere appreciation to BATAN for hosting this workshop and briefly informed about current status of operation of nuclear power plants in Japan. He appreciated this project providing an opportunity to be aware of strength and weakness of their own safety management systems through project activities such as consolidated reports. He expected contribution of all the participants to each session and wished for every success of the workshop. Finally, he also expressed his deepest sympathy to Dr Sueo Machi, former FNCA coordinator for Japan, for his numerous works for FNCA in his life time.
