Independent review of regulatory activities

Integrated Regulatory Review Service

The International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) Integrated Regulatory Review Service (IRRS) Missions are a valuable international regulatory benchmarking exercise involving peer group review by international experts. Senior ARPANSA officers participate in these missions to other countries. The original mission to review ARPANSA’s regulatory framework and its effectiveness against IAEA Safety Standards was held in 2007, with a follow-up IRRS mission in November 2011. The next IRRS mission to Australia will take place from 4‑16 November 2018.

In May 2014, the ANAO released its report on its examination of the effectiveness of ARPANSA's management of the regulation of Commonwealth nuclear, radiation facilities and sources, including ARPANSA’s compliance with its legislative requirements.
