Nigerian Nuclear Regulatory Authority secures €I million grant

The Nigerian Nuclear Regulatory Authority (NNRA) has secured a €I million grant from the European Union (EU) for the implementation of an international nuclear safety cooperation project for the safe management of radioactive waste in Nigeria.

The Director General of the NNRA (Nuclear Regulatory Authority), Dr. Yau Usman Idris Nigeria has been granted a significant opportunity.

This opportunity arose after the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) confirmed that Nigeria has established a robust system for nuclear safety and security, which is currently undergoing substantial improvements through updates to its legal and regulatory structures.

This development comes as part of a broader project that aims to bolster Nigeria’s capabilities in the field of nuclear energy. The primary focus of this project is on capacity development and training.   

It involves equipping Nigerian experts and institutions with the knowledge and skills necessary to handle nuclear technologies safely and securely.

Additionally, the project intends to enhance the regulatory framework for nuclear safety.   

Also, it seeks to refine the rules and regulations governing the use of nuclear energy in Nigeria, making sure they are up-to-date and comprehensive.

Moreover, the project emphasizes the implementation of recommendations from various IAEA missions related to Nigeria’s regulatory infrastructure.  

These recommendations essentially serve as a roadmap to ensure that Nigeria complies with the highest international standards in nuclear safety and security.

In essence, this grant signifies a substantial step towards making Nigeria a more responsible and proficient player in the realm of nuclear energy, with a strong emphasis on safety, security, and regulatory compliance.
