Draft under review

The Regulatory Control Book (RCB) is an IAEA training series publication, produced in 2002, which consists of two parts, a text book and a work book with exercises and tests.
For over eleven years, this book has played an important role in nuclear safety education and training activities, particularly those performed under IAEA supervision. It is used by professionals or new graduates involved or intending to become involved in nuclear regulatory activities. It provides them with all necessary information on regulatory framework,...
The revision of the RCB is an opportunity to also make it available as an e-book on the web (e-book).

The ability of a regulatory body to fulfil its responsibilities depends largely on the competence of its staff. Building employees’ skills and knowledge is an investment in each employee and in the future of the organization.

Competence is the combination of Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes (KSAs) needed by a person to perform a particular job. All three domains are important and interrelate.

Regulatory bodies are required to have a management system for the management of their activities. Competence management needs to be integrated into the management system. The transparency and auditability, inherent in such a system, facilitates self-assessment and supports the confidence of interested parties in the regulatory body’s processes and competences.

Final draft under review
​The SARCON (Systematic Assessment of Regulatory Competence Needs) Guidelines have been developed and used by a considerable number of regulatory bodies together with the IAEA, mainly in the area of nuclear installation safety. It describes a step-based procedure to analyse systematically a broad range of competences that a regulatory body might need to perform effectively its functions. It supports future planning and management of training and it is in line the advice of the IAEA safety standards.

The objective of these guidelines is to provide information on specific and practical means to support the implementation of the IAEA safety standards in the area of ensuring regulatory competence. It is expected that these guidelines will also support the Member States in the implementation of Article 8 of the Nuclear Safety Convention and Modules 3 and 4 of the IRRS
