Nuclear decommissioning is the process whereby a facility is dismantled to the point that it no longer requires measures for radiation protection. Decommissioning includes the following stages:
– Post operational clean out
– Initial dismantling and removal of contaminated parts or care and maintenance to allow radioactive materials to decay
– Dismantling of the facility, demolition of the structure, and remediation of land and water to future use standard.

A full day of presentations and discussion will focus on the role of human factors in the safe and effective decommissioning of nuclear generation assets. This event will concentrate on sharing knowledge and experience, to better understand how human factors expertise can support decommissioning more effectively in the future.
