The Spanish Nuclear Safety Council (CSN) cooperates to various degrees of involvement with public and private bodies related with its area of responsibilities. Cooperation of this sort may consist of one-off activities or it may be an ongoing affair, like the CSN’s cooperation with the Centre for Energy, Environmental and Technological Research (CIEMAT). In all cooperation arrangements, R&D is one of the preferred objectives.
For example, agreements with universities and research centres provide the CSN with technical assistance in environmental radiation monitoring plans and the metering of environmental radiation in emergencies.
The CSN has liaison committees with companies and organisations related with the first and second phases of the fuel cycle, the running and operation of nuclear facilities and R&D activities in issues of radiation protection and nuclear safety, including ENUSA, UNESA, ENRESA and CIEMAT.
