GC Side Event on  Defence in Depth

During the 56th IAEA General Conference, the Safety Assessment Section held a side event on Defence in Depth. Member States were invited to attend and participate on this event to discuss a topic that has been gaining importance after the Fukushima accident in 2011. The objective of the event was to present new considerations and promote discussion with senior international experts on the issues that need to be addressed and directions for the further development of the Defence in Depth (DiD) concept and its practical application. A panel discussion was preceded by short presentations by panellists from the United Kingdom, Slovakia, and the IAEA.
