May 31, 2023

As Chair of 51st Meeting of the International Nuclear Regulators’ Association (INRA), CNSC President and CEO Rumina Velshi issued the following statement on behalf of INRA.

Joint Statement on the conflict in Ukraine

We, the members of the International Nuclear Regulators’ Association (INRA), comprising the national nuclear regulators from Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States, continue to be gravely concerned about the ongoing conflict in Ukraine and the potential serious impacts on the safety and security of its nuclear power plants and facilities.

Consistent with the statement we released in September 2022, INRA members continue to fully support the efforts of the Ukrainian nuclear regulator to maintain safe and secure nuclear facilities. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has fulfilled an essential role in ensuring that accurate and up-to-date information is available on the status of the nuclear facilities, and INRA members remain committed to providing support to the IAEA to enable it to maintain its programme of assistance and assurance monitoring in Ukraine.

We commend the courage, dedication and extraordinary efforts of workers who have placed themselves at risk to ensure the continued safety of nuclear facilities in Ukraine. We stand in solidarity with the Ukrainian nuclear regulator, its operator and the people of Ukraine.
