1.1.2. Geography and Climate
Romania is situated in the geographical center of Europe (south-east of Central Europe), north of Balkan Peninsula and halfway between Atlantic Coast and The Urals. The lower course of the Danube passes through Romania for 1075 km, before exiting into the Black Sea. Romania is the twelfth largest country in Europe, with an area of 238,391 km2.
Romania’s Black Sea coastline is 245km long, stretching from Masura stream, at the Ukrainian border, to Vama Voche, at the border with Bulgaria. This coastline provides access to countries in the Black Sea basin, in the Mediterranean Sea basin and, through these, to the rest of the world.
Romania's natural landscape consists of three major levels. The highest level is found in the Carpathians, where the highest peak, Moldoveanu, is 2,544 m. The middle level corresponds to the Sub-Carpathians, to the hills and to the plateaus. Romania’s lowest level of relief is found in its plains, meadows and in the Danube Delta. The Danube Delta, the youngest relief unit under permanent formation, has an average height of 0.52 m. Main features of the relief units are their proportionality (31% mountains, 36% hills and plateaus, 33% plains and meadows) and the concentric display of the major relief levels.
Romania’s climate is temperate-continental of transition, with oceanic influences from the west, Mediterranean ones from south-west and continental-excessive ones from the east. Multiannual average temperature is latitudinally different, with 8°C in the north and over 11°C in the south, and altitudinally different, with values of -2.5°C in the mountain floor (Omu peak - Bucegi massif) and 11.6°C in the plain (Zimnicea town - Teleorman county).
Yearly precipitations decrease in intensity from west to east, from over 600 mm to less than 500 mm in the East Romanian Plain, under 450 mm in Dobrogea and about 350 mm by seaside. In the mountainous areas they reach 1,000-1,500 mm.
Romanian running waters are radially displayed, most of them having their source in the Carpathians. They are predominantly tributaries of the Danube river, which crosses the country in the south and flows into the Black Sea. There are natural lakes (numerous genetic types) spread in all major units of relief, from glacial ones in the alpine floor (Mioarelor Lake in Fagaras, at 2,282 m) to river-maritime banks (Techirghiol Lake, at 1.5 m) and anthropic lakes.
The vegetation is determined by the relief and by pedoclimatic elements. Mountainous regions are covered by coniferous forests (especially spruce fir), mixture forests (beech, fir, spruce fir) and beech forests. Higher peaks are covered by alpine lawns and by bushes of dwarf pine, juniper, bilberry, red bilberry etc.
In the hills and plateaus, there are broad-leaved forests, of predominantly beech, common oak or durmast oak. The main forest species, often met on low hills and high plains, are Quercus cerris and Quercus frainetto.
The steppe and silvosteppe vegetation, which covered the areas of low humidity in Dobrogea Plateau, Romanian Plain, Moldova Plateau, Banat and Crisana Plain, has been mostly replaced by agricultural crops.
Romania's fauna is grouped according to each species’ biotype. Relict elements, such as black goat (chamois) and mountain vulture, live in the alpine area. Various animals live in the Carpathian forests, such as bear, buck, lynx, wolf, wild boar, roebuck, squirrel and several species of bird. In a few mountainous areas, both mountain cock and birch cock are still met. In the hill and field areas, there are hares, moles, hedgehogs, various birds, lizards and batrachian. Rodents such as gopher and hamster are characteristic of the steppe areas. Water fauna is represented especially by trout in the mountainous waters (huck, which was widely spread in the past, has become quite rare), dace and barbel in the hill region, and carp, perch, pike, sheat fish and crucian in the field region and Danube Delta. Sturgeon species are also found in the marine territorial waters and on the downstream Danube.
Romania's useful minerals resources are various. They include crude oil, with old exploitation traditions, natural gas, coal, especially coking pit coal, brown coal and lignite, ferrous and nonferrous ores, gold, silver and bauxite ore deposits. There are vast reserves of salt as well as numerous nonmetalliferous resources. A special category of subsoil riches is the over 2,000 mineral water springs, with consumption and medical treatments valences.
Romanian territory is divided, from an administrative viewpoint, into villages, communes, towns, municipalities and counties.
As territorial (non-administrative) units, 8 regions of development were created, gathering several counties.
County represents the traditional administrative-territorial unit in Romania, including towns and communes, and depending on geographical, economical and social-political conditions and on population, cultural and traditional relations. Romania’s territory is organized into 42 counties (including Bucharest Municipality).
Municipality is a town with an important economic, social, political and cultural role, usually with an administrative function.
Town represents a human concentration with administrative function and a life specific to urban areas. It has a professional population structure wherein the population is predominantly employed in nonagricultural branches of the economy.
Commune is a territorial-administrative unit which comprises a rural population, united by interest and traditional community, and includes one or several villages (of which one is the commune residence).
Village is the smallest territorial unit, with characteristics of rural settlements.

1.2.3. Energy policy
As part of the economic reform measures passed in 1990, the energy sector was reorganized two types of autonomous state enterprise were established: Regies Autonomous (RAs) for the production and supply of energy products, and Commercial Companies (CCs) for support services and activities. This enabled the government to separate policy and regulation from operational functions, to bring accountability, and to institute commercial practices in the energy sector. RAs are state holding-companies for sectors considered strategic by the Government of Romania, including electric power, oil, natural gas, lignite, and coal. CCs are joint-stock companies, established under commercial law.
The energy sector is under the supervision of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Business Environment, which formulates policies and strategy.
The Government is currently trying to cope with the current global economic circumstances, with increased energy demand and with clarified requirements for a clean and safe environment. The economic context is characterized by deregulation and competition, supported by the industry.
Current government policy aims to develop an energy sector that promotes a market-oriented economy, in accordance with the relevant EU Directives. Following the general elections of December 2008, the new Government Program for 2009-2012 calls for the updating of the national energy strategy, according to the new evolutions and priorities. A new energy strategy is to be accomplished, therefore, by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Business Environment in the near future.
Furthermore, since the beginning of 2009, following a decision by the Romanian Government, the energy institutional framework restructuring process is still in progress.
The Romanian environment authorities sent the European Commission updated information on the implementation of the “Energy – climate change” package, which was adopted by the European Union by 2008. For Romania, this plan will come into force as of January 2013.
According to the official statistical data for 2007, there were 244 certified environment installations in Romania, and the country’s annual carbon dioxide emissions stood at 74 million tons. A decrease in the number of said facilities and of emissions was found to have occurred over the interval 2008-2009. The national greenhouse gas emissions cap is currently set at 300 million tons a year.
1.3. The electricity system
1.3.1. Electricity policy and decision making process
In 2007, the Romanian government approved a long-term energy strategy, building on the National Energy Strategy on Medium Term.
The government's strategy places emphasis on:
increasing energy efficiency
boosting renewable energy
diversifying import sources and transport routes
protecting critical infrastructure.
The strategy aims to create public-private partnerships in different sectors. An example of this can be found in the nuclear field, with the building of two additional units (3 and 4) in Romania's nuclear power plant in Cernavoda.
Romania's overall goal is to become an important electricity exporter and to double power output to approximately 100 TWh by 2020. This amount will be greater than the level of domestic consumption.
A new energy strategy is to be formulated by the Ministry of Economy in the near future.
1.3.2. Structure of electric power sector
The generation, transmission and distribution network consists of the following companies:
Termoelectrica S.A., which is the Commercial Company for Electricity and Heat Generation. It is responsible for the production of electrical and thermal energy, and responsible for electricity generation from thermal power plants, district heating, and related fuel supplies. The reorganization process at SC Termoelectrica S.A. continues in a dynamic rhythm, sustained also by government decision 1524/2002 regarding the creation of competitive conditions in the energy production sector.
Hidroelectrica S.A., which is the Commercial Company for Electricity Generation and for the production and delivery of hydroelectric power.
Electrica S.A., which is the Commercial Company for Electricity Distribution and Supply. SC Electrica S.A. was reorganized in 2002. It is now a group of companies, which includes 8 branches for the supply and distribution of electric energy and 8 branches for maintenance and energetic services. 5 out of 8 distributors had been privatized by 2007.
Nuclearelectrica S.A. (SNN), which carries out, as its main mission, the production of nuclear power and nuclear fuel and project development at the Cernavoda Nuclear Power Plant site. Nuclearelectrica S.A. has two branches:
- Cernavoda NPP Division, operating Cernavoda NPP Units 1 and 2 and the auxiliary services
- FCN - Pitesti, the Nuclear Fuel Plant that manufactures nuclear fuel for Cernavoda NPP Units 1 and 2
In addition, Nuclearelectrica S.A. is associated with the recently-settled EnergoNuclear S.A. Project Company, responsible for completion of Cernavoda NPP Units 3 and 4.
The whole economic and technical operation and development of the electricity sector will be regulated, ruled, supervised and monitored by the Romanian Energy Regulatory Authority, ANRE. ANRE was created according to the new Electricity Law, set up by a Government Emergency Ordinance in October 1998, as a public institution, both independent and autonomous.
Romania has an extensive interconnected power transmission and distribution network, with an overall length of about 600,000 km and a total transformer capacity of about 172,000 MVA. The national grid operates on 750 kV, 400 kV, and 220 kV for transmission, and 20 kV, 10 kV, 6 kV, 1 kV and 0.4 kV for distribution.
As a limited member of the Interconnected Power System-Central Dispatching Organization, Romania has strong interconnections with Ukraine and Bulgaria, substantial interconnections with the former Yugoslavia, and weaker links to the Republic of Moldavia and Hungary. The Romanian grid operator, Transelectrica, is currently co-operating with the electric power systems of Greece and the former Yugoslavia (both UCPTE members), and is working to become more fully integrated into the UCPTE system. The transmission network is interconnected with those of neighboring countries – by 750 kV (4,000 MWe capacity), 400 kV (2,500 MWe capacity), and two 110 kV tie-lines with Ukraine, a 400 kV line with Hungary (currently operating at 220 kV, with a planned capacity of 1,200 MWe), 750 kV (4,000 MWe capacity), 400 kV (2,500 MWe capacity), and 220 kV (260 MWe capacity) lines to Bulgaria, one 400 kV (1,200 MWe capacity) and two 110 kV lines with former Yugoslavia, and two 110 kV lines with Moldavia. In 2001, Transelectrica received a $51.5 million loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) to upgrade the Romanian transmission system and make it more compatible with the western European power network.

2.1.2. Current organizational chart(s)
The three main institutional pillars of the Romanian nuclear field are:
- Nuclear Agency and Radioactive Waste (AN&DR) is a specialized authority of the central public administration, acting as a legal person, co-ordinated by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Business Environment. The main object of the activities of the AN&DR is to provide technical assistance to the government in devising policies in the nuclear field, as well as to promote and monitor nuclear activities in Romania. AN&DR is the national competent authority, co-ordinating the safe management of spent nuclear fuel and radioactive waste, including final disposal, at a national level.
AN&DR elaborates and monitors the implementation of:
· National Strategy for Nuclear Field Development
· National Nuclear Program
- National Commission for Nuclear Activities (CNCAN) is the national competent authority in the nuclear field, exercising the functions of regulation, authorization and control of nuclear activities.
- The national nuclear operator is Nuclearelectrica S.A. The shareholders of Nuclearelectrica S.A. are the Romanian State (90.28%) and „Fondul Proprietatea” (9.72%). Its main activities include electrical power and heat production, NPP construction and commissioning, and nuclear fuel fabrication.
2.2. Nuclear power plants: Overview
2.2.1. Status and performance of nuclear power plants
The electricity annually generated by the Cernavoda NPP Units 1 and 2 represents approximately 19% of the overall electricity production of Romania.

2.2.2. Plant upgrading, plant life management and license renewals
Cernavoda Unit 1, having been in operation since December 1996, started the development of the Plant Life Management (PLiM) Programme. Due to its complexity, the programme plan has been divided into several subprogrammes and pilot projects, and integrated with other initiatives for improvement to the long-term strategy of Cernavoda NPP (2004-2008), managed effectively by annual Station Technical Programmes.
The overall PLiM programme is designed to meet the needs of Cernavoda Unit 1 for a structured work programme, and will be implemented in phases. This phased approach will provide the information required for input into its cost model for plant economic assessments.

2.3. Future development of Nuclear Power
2.3.1. Nuclear power development strategy
Further nuclear power capacity
In 2002, efforts got under way to resume work on Cernavoda Unit 3. Nuclearelectrica S.A. commissioned a feasibility study from Ansaldo, AECL and KHNP (S. Korea) in 2003.
In August 2004, the government advertised for companies interested in the completion of Cernavoda Unit 3, a 700 MWe Candu 6 unit, through a public-private partnership arrangement. This proved impractical, and a feasibility study in March 2006 analyzed further options for both Units 3 and 4.
Main foreseen characteristics of Cernavoda NPP Units 3 and 4 are:
Reactor Type: CANDU 6
Installed Output: 2 x 720 MWe
Delivered Power: 2 x 5,239 TWh/year
Schedule: 64 months per unit
Unit Life: 30 years, possible 40
Electricity Price: 28.2-32.5 Euro/MWh
Policy for nuclear fuel cycle
Current policy is for a once–through nuclear fuel cycle without reprocessing
Strategy for funding long term spent fuel handling and final disposal, waste management and decommissioning
The Unit 2 (CANDU 6 PHWR) from Cernavoda NPP started operation at the end of 2007. Because there is a difference in operation between the two NPPs of eleven years, and to finalize the decommissioning at the same time, Unit 1 was assigned the SAFESTORE strategy for decommissioning (31 years from shut-down to release from CNCAN control) and Unit 2 the DECON strategy for decommissioning (20 years from shut-down to release from CNCAN control). It is expected that each unit will operate for about 40 years. The decommissioning of Unit 2 is scheduled to begin in 2054. In 2067, after 7 years of preparation in the transition period from operation to decommissioning will be completed.
New Nuclear Power Plant in Romania
The construction of a new NPP after 2020 is under consideration.
2.3.2. Project management
The annual production of a CANDU 720 MWe nuclear unit is steady, with output amounting to about 5.2-5.4 TWh (gross). This leads to an equivalent yearly reduction of roughly 1.4 million tons of oil, representing more than 100 millions USD, and the associated decrease in noxious emissions.
The “Strategy” states that, given present conditions in Romania and taking into account the cost of energy from nuclear plants versus the costs of fossil fuel power plants, investment should continue for the next units of Cernavoda NPP.
In addition, sites are currently being considered for a second nuclear-power plant.
At present, R&D programs are addressing problems regarding: the nuclear safety and physics of nuclear reactors, testing of nuclear materials and equipment, development of new concepts of nuclear fuel cycles and advanced reactors, decommissioning (the VVR-S research reactor from Bucharest-Magurele is preparing the decommissioning process), management of nuclear waste, and protection of environment.
2.3.3. Project funding
The project company EnergoNuclear S.A. was established by Governmental Decision no. 1565/2008, and consists of Nuclearelectrica S.A. and private investors. The current Romanian Government Program states that the selection of new investors and re-negotiations will occur within a public-private partnership.

Cernavoda NPP Units 3 and 4 – Project Development Activities
For the completion of Cernavoda NPP Units 3 and 4, the new project company, EnergoNuclear S.A., which was established through the Governmental Decision no. 1565/2008, announced two phases of the project:
- the pre-project phase: this is estimated to last 18 months from the registration of the Project Company, and will have a budget of 30 million Euro as a result of shareholder subscriptions and payments. During this period, the investors will conclude the commercial arrangements for the construction of the reactors, their long-term operation and the financing methods. During these 18 months, the necessary approvals from the European Commission for construction must also be obtained
- the project phase: this is the period in which each investor will contribute to covering the costs of the project with an amount relevant to the share owned in the social capital of the company.
2.5. Organizations involved in operation of NPPs
National Company Nuclearelectrica S.A., the owner and operator of Cernavoda NPP, was founded by Governmental Decision no. 365 in July 1998. CNE PROD Cernavoda, a subsidiary of Nuclearelectrica S.A., is responsible for operating the Cernavoda Units 1 and 2.
There is another subsidiary of Nuclearelectrica S.A., the Nuclear Fuel Plant in Pitesti–Mioveni. This is the local manufacturer of CANDU-type nuclear fuel for the Cernavoda Units 1 and 2. CNE PROD has its own maintenance division and a Training Center with a full scope simulator.
2.6. Organizations involved in decommissioning of NPPs
No available data
2.7. Fuel cycle including waste management
Nuclear fuel cycle policy: Open nuclear fuel cycle
Uranium mining activities started in Romania in 1952. The National Uranium Company (CNU) is the representative of the State in this activity, and has three uranium mining branches (EM): Bihor - EM Bihor, Banat - EM Banat, and Suceava - EM Crucea.
Milling and conversion:
Uranium ores are processed by the Feldioara plant, which is operated by CNU. The Feldioara processing plant has two modules:
- ‘R’ type module for uranium milling and concentration (nominal capacity 300 t U(U3O8)/y)
- ‘E’ type module for uranium refining and conversion to nuclear grade UO2 (nominal capacity 300 t U(UO2)/y).
Both modules are in operation, but the production capacity is reduced to about 100 t U(U3O8)/y for the R plant, and on request (by the Pitesti Fuel Fabrication Plant (FCN Pitesti)) for the E plant. The Feldioara processing plant has been qualified by AECL as a CANDU UO2 fuel supplier.
Spent fuel produced by Cernavoda NPPs is not reprocessed
The Nuclearelectrica S.A. operates FCN Pitesti. The present capacity of FCN Pitesti (110 t U/y) will be increased in accordance with Cernavoda NPP requirements. FCN Pitesti has been qualified by AECL as a CANDU fuel supplier.
The nuclear fuel needed for operation of the Cernavoda NPP Units 1 and 2 is supplied by the Nuclear Fuel Plant from Pitesti. In 2007, FCN obtained the TUV EN ISO 14001:2004 certificate for its management system. The capacity of the plant enables it to provide the annual amount of fuel necessary for Unit 1 and 2 operation. With small investment to extend its production capacity, it will be able to meet the requirements of the operation of four units.
Heavy water production:
The Romanian Authority for Nuclear Activities operates the ROMAG PROD Heavy Water Plant (design capacity 360 t/y).
Spent fuel management:
Romania’s objective is to ensure the safe management of radioactive waste, including spent fuel, according to the provision of laws and regulations assuring the protection of human health and the environment, including the protection of future generations.
Romanian radioactive waste producers are:
- Unit 1 - in operation since December 1996
- Unit 2 – commissioned in 2007
- Nuclear Research Institute (SCN) from Pitesti
3. Medicine, agriculture, industry
Cernavoda NPP current waste management:
- The gaseous and aqueous liquid waste is collected, filtered/purified by designed systems and then safely released/discharged into the environment.
- Organic liquid waste is pretreated (collection and segregation by interim storage criteria), treated (absorption into polymeric structure), packaged in stainless steel drums and stored in an interim storage facility.
- Solid radioactive waste management at CNE Cernavoda includes the pretreatment (collection, segregation), treatment (volume reduction by compaction or shredding) and safe storage of the waste.
The current capacity of the concrete building that accommodates solid radioactive waste (storage facility at Cernavoda NPP) is for 46 reactor-years.
After extraction from the nuclear reactor and during the first “cooling down” stage, spent fuel is stored on racks under water in the spent fuel bay, placed near the reactor building. After 6 years, the spent fuel can be transferred to a dry place, the Intermediate Spent Fuel Storage facility (DICA).
The Cernavoda NPP DICA has been constructed based on AECL technology, adapted to the Cernavoda conditions. The first module was commissioned in May 2003, and at present there are 3 modules already erected on the site. The site is licensed so that the total storage capacity (27 MACSTOR modules) can accommodate the spent fuel produced by Unit 1 and Unit 2 for a 50 year storage period. The site could be extended to accommodate the spent fuel produced by all 4 units from Cernavoda NPP.
Research reactors radioactive waste:
Nuclear Research Institute (SCN) from Pitesti: According to the Agreement signed between Romania and USA, the HEU type fuel has already been returned to USA.
Institutional radioactive waste:
The processing and conditioning of the institutional radioactive waste is done by IFIN-HH and SCN Pitesti on the research reactor sites at Bucharest and Pitesti, in the respective Treatment and Conditioning facilities. IFIN-HH is responsible for the transport of conditioned institutional radioactive waste to the National Repository for Radioactive Waste (DNDR), which is located at Baita Bihor. The first waste disposals were made in 1986, and the current estimate is that disposals will continue until 2040. The repository is currently operated by IFIN-HH.
The National Strategy on Medium and Long Term Management of Spent Nuclear Fuel and Radioactive Waste, including the Disposal and the Decommissioning of Nuclear and Radiological Facilities, provides:
- L&ILW Surface Repository by the end of 2020
- HLW Deep Geological Repository Facility by the end of 2055
- safety and technical characteristics of BAITA-BIHOR Repository improvement
In the long–term, the liability concerning the final repository for radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel rests with the “Nuclear Agency & Radioactive Waste”, set up in 2009.

Romania also participates in international programs concerning advanced reactor systems, such as INPRO.
2.8.3. International co-operation and initiatives
In the nuclear field, international co-operation mainly aims at ensuring the safety and reliability of nuclear facilities. For this goal, Romania is carrying out active co-operation activities consisting of: information exchange, training courses and international meetings, elaboration of studies, expertise, design, tests, research and common regulations, thereby enhancing and sharing their experience and know-how. All these contribute to a permanent improvement of the qualifications of personnel.
IAEA provides Romania with technical assistance through a Country Programme Framework, aiming to identify and address short- and medium-term objectives and interests, and national development priorities. Nuclear Agency is the National Contact Point for the Technical Co-operation with IAEA.
Romania is an active participant in the technical co-operation regional, European and international programmes in the following areas: strategic planning for sustainable development of nuclear institutions, research reactors, radiation medicine, isotopic technologies for water resources, NPP Probabilistic Safety Assessment, radioprotection and nuclear techniques used in agriculture. Romania participated in the 2009-2011 TC Cycle in 35 regional projects, and is co-ordinator for three of them. Some of the beneficiary institutions are: IFIN-HH, CNCAN, AN&DR, Nuclearelectrica and SCN-Pitesti.
Following the U.S. Secretary of Energy’s announcement of the Global Threat Reduction Initiative (GTRI), in 2004, the IAEA initiated a Technical Co-operation project ROM/4/024 to enable the safe operation of the TRIGA 14-MW reactor from SCN Pitesti during the gradual and complete conversion from HEU to LEU fuel. The IAEA project was originally approved in 1999, but became active in 2003, with the receipt of extra budgetary contributions totaling $3.6 million from the U.S. and $0.5 Million from Romania. The total project cost was $4.4 million, with IAEA contributing $0.3 Million and taking the co-ordinating role.
In September 2007, Romania became an active member of the Global Nuclear Energy Partnership (GNEP) by signing the Declaration of Principles. The outstanding importance of this Partnership resides in the strengthening of nuclear safety and nuclear risk mitigation through a balanced promotion of R&D development and partnership in international policy. Romania is represented in the steering committee and working groups.
Romania also joined the Global Initiative to Combat Nuclear Terrorism (GI), in 2007. Signing the GI Declaration of Principles, Romania ceded all legal instruments needed for prevention of nuclear terrorism acts: prevention, early detection, combating and investigation. Romania is represented in the organizing committees of the working groups. Romanian scientists are actively involved in international research projects, such as: INPRO, ITER, GIF, Framework Programme 7 EURATOM, JRC and CERN. Many of them are also associated with projects developed within the international research network or in co-operation with international research institutes (e.g. Joint Institute for Nuclear Research DUBNA).
Nuclearelectica SA is an active member of international specialized organizations and entities, such as WANO-Atlanta Center (World Association of Nuclear Operators) and COG (CANDU Owners Group), benefiting from a continuous exchange of experience in the field.
Nuclearelectrica SA is also a member of the World Nuclear Association (WNA) and Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). It has developed an effective and large partnership within IAEA European regional co-operation programs.
Under IAEA’s aegis, Romania grants technical assistance to nuclear specialists from developing countries that operate CANDU nuclear power plants or intend to start or enlarge nuclear programs.
2.9. Human resources development
The complexity and risk level of the facilities and equipment of a nuclear power plant require high-quality manpower and its preservation throughout time. To this end, Romania considers the work performed in the human resources field a priority. Special attention is paid to the strategy relating to personnel recruitment and personnel loyalty/job stability, as well as to the sustained improvement of training and specialization quality. This is accomplished both through analyzing the work of that particular domain and through application of the provisions under the Collective Labor Agreement, that is adapted to the relevant requirements and to the laws in force.
The main activity and concern within the human resources area has been and continues to be personnel recruiting and job stability. This has been alleviated by applying some strictly-established selection criteria regarding personnel specialization, as well as by applying a remuneration system focused mainly on jobs specific to the nuclear domain.
The training of personnel working in the nuclear field is focused on the attributions of each category of jobs, and provides the knowledge necessary for performing activities safely and efficiently. The personnel are trained both inside the companies/institutions, through on-the-job training courses and workshops, and outside them, through participation in national and international conferences, symposia, workshops and other events within the programs organized by IAEA-Vienna and by other national and international organizations.
Two personnel training centers have been established:
Nuclear Training Centre - Department within IFIN-HH, Magurele, Bucharest. Develops activities related to the qualification and/or specialization of personnel for nuclear applications or other related fields. CPSDN activity is carried out in compliance with a Quality Management System certified in accordance with EN ISO 9001:2000 by TUV HESSEN, through TUV CERT certification body.
Cernavoda Training Center at Cernavoda NPP, developed with IAEA technical support, runs nuclear safety and security training programs
