For reference

The European Technical Safety Organisations Network (ETSON) was established in 2006 as a result of efforts made by Technical and Scientific Support Organizations of France (IRSN), Germany (GRS), Belgium (former AVN and presently Bel V) with the purpose to strengthen and maintain the current successful cooperation practice, as well as to enter the market of nuclear review in the status of a unified highly experienced expert.

At the moment, in addition to the founding organizations, the Association includes TSOs from European Union member states: JACOBS (UK), ENEA (Italy), LEI (Lithuania), VUJE (Slovakia), JSI (Slovenia), EK-CER (Hungary), VTT (Finland), SÚRO (Czech Republic), PSI (Switzerland), RATEN ICN (Romania) and organizations from non-European Union states: SEC NRS (Russia), NRA (Japan) and SSTC NRS (Ukraine).

Current and continued SEC NRS involvement in ETSON work will enable the TSO of Rostechnadzor to share its experience and cutting-edge practices between mature expert organizations, most notably from the EU, regarding the aspects of safety review (analysis) of nuclear facilities and the related activities, joint research, safety guides development. It will allow to provide the comprehensive scientific and technical support to nuclear regulatory authority of Russia in a more efficient way.
