Arab Network of Nuclear Regulators

Arab Network of Nuclear Regulators

The Arab Network of Nuclear Regulators (ANNuR) was created in 2010 with the purpose of strengthening and harmonizing the regulatory infrastructure in Arab countries as well as exchanging regulatory knowledge and experiences with other international and regional networks under the IAEA Global Nuclear Safety and Security Network (GNSSN). The IAEA and the ANNuR signed practical arrangements in April 2014 that constitute a clear framework for the increased cooperation between the two organizations.

2. Characteristics of the site and its environment that could influence the transfer of released radioactive material to people and the environment;
3. The population density and population distribution and other characteristics of the external zone in so far as they may affect the possibility of implementing emergency measures and the need to evaluate the risks to individuals and the population.
