INVAP adopts Nuclear Principles of Conduct

INVAP, an Argentinian based vendor of nuclear facilities, has adopted the Nuclear Power Plant and Reactor Exporters’ Principles of Conduct and joined its implementation review process (NuPoC). In keeping with NuPOC’s spirit of having an open process allowing the participation of all relevant designers and exporters of nuclear facilities, participating companies welcomed this adoption. INVAP develops, designs, engineers, manufactures, integrates, installs, commissions and turns over nuclear reactors and associated process, equipment, and facilities for the complete Nuclear Fuel Cycle.

The Principles establish clear voluntary guidelines for negotiating export contracts, designing facilities and engaging customers. They create common high standards of practice in the areas of safety, security, nonproliferation, environmental protection, ethics, and liability insurance. Together, they represent a voluntary industry code of conduct that complement and often exceednational laws and regulations, thus raising the bar globally on the standards of responsible nuclear conduct. Through a regular review process, the companies update each other on their implementation efforts and discuss best practices, as well as engage stakeholders.

Participating vendors are:

  • AREVA
  • ATMEA
  • Babcock & Wilcox Company
  • Candu Energy
  • Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy
  • INVAP
  • GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy
  • KEPCO
  • Mitsubishi Heavy Industries
  • Rusatom Overseas
  • Toshiba
  • Westinghouse Electric Company
