INEX and the NEA programme in international nuclear emergency matters.
International Workshop on Real-time Computing of the Environmental Consequences of an Accident Release from a Nuclear Installation. Aronsborg (SWE), 1996/10/07.
Since the accidents at Three Mile Island in 1979, and more especially Chernobyl in 1986, many countries have intensified their efforts in emergency planning and preparedness for nuclear accidents.
As a result of this interest by its member countries, the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has been actively involved in this area.
The International Nuclear Emergency Exercise (INEX 1) is an outgrowth of a variety of NEA emergency planning and preparedness activities.
In 1993, a total of 16 countries participated in this tabletop exercise, which focused on the international aspects of nuclear accidents.
The conclusions and recommendations from INEX 1 in the areas of communications, monitoring and database management, assistance, cross-border issues, short-term countermeasures, long-term countermeasures, agricultural issues, and decision making are briefly discussed, as are those of the three NEA workshops which were organised based on these INEX 1 recommendations.
As further follow-up to INEX 1, and based on recommendations from the NEA 1 exercise and from the three workshops, the NEA is currently planning INEX 2. Four regional exercises in the INEX 2 series are currently scheduled, including the Swiss (November 1996), Finnish (April 1997), Canadian (April 1998), and Hungarian (summer/fall 1998) regional exercises.
