Regulatory Forum for Safety of Uranium Production and NORM (REGSUN)

The production of uranium production and the management of Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORM) have important safety and environmental protection considerations. Additional challenges are posed by new applications for uranium production, as well as increasing expectations for protection of health and the environment.

At its 2016 and 2017 General Conferences, the IAEA made resolutions relating to strengthening international cooperation in relation to uranium production and NORM.

The objectives of the forum are to help build capacity in all Member States undertaking or considering uranium production or the management of NORM activities and NORM residues. The forum would promote good regulation and safe and environmentally responsible practices, through the application of IAEA Safety Standards by: 

  • promoting and increasing the exchange of information and expertise among its participants, including regular updates on best practice approaches, targeted assistance in review and provision of expertise, and identification of gaps in guidance and support;
  • supporting the utilization of IAEA tools and training materials;
  • providing strategic input for future IAEA work in areas related to safety of uranium production and NORM activities; 
  • assisting Member States to implement a sound regulatory regime for the regulation of uranium production and the management of NORM activities and residues, with the objectives of protecting human health and the environment and preventing the creation of future 
  • legacy sites.
