Nuclear power plant licensing is one of the first and most crucial steps in ensuring a safe and secure NPP project. TÜV SÜD supports you as nuclear TSO from the onset of new build NPPs. The key licensing issues are NPP siting, evaluation of NPP concepts, hazard analyses, quality management systems, quality assurance and radioactive waste disposal concepts.
As an impartial partner familiar with international safety standards, TÜV SÜD assists authorities in creating national regulations and standards that mitigate risk and increase public acceptance of NPPs. We provide developers and operators with expert support and training to ensure technical and environmental compliance with regulations and national standards.
