       Ministry of Science and Technology by the Office of Atoms for peace (OAP) in cooperation with Thailand Institute of Nuclear Technology hosted the ASEAN Nuclear Youth Camp 2017 which was held during 27 – 30 June 2017 at The National Science Museum, Pathumthani, Thailand under the framework of the ASEAN cooperation for the development of science and technology project to creating the scientific community among the new generation in ASEAN countries.

      Dr. Atchara Wongsaengchan, OAP secretary General, declared the ASEAN Nuclear Youth Camp 2017 was completed with a fruitful outcome by providing an unique opportunity to 31 participants from the high school students and teacher from ASEAN countries to show their creative talents during the participation in the camp through the group activities, brain storming and presentation. The ASEAN Nuclear Youth Camp 2017 also aimed to enhance the learning society and increase the interest in nuclear science and technology among the new generations in ASEAN countries. The participants engaged in a number of experience-sharing sessions, attended lectures by an expert from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), and experienced lecturers from OAP and TINT. Furthermore, all participants had a chance to visit OAP laboratories, and the research reactor at TINT. The activities at the camp could expand their knowledge and more understanding on nuclear technology and the peaceful use of nuclear applications.

        On March 15, 2017, Thailand and U.S signed the Arrangement between the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Office of Atoms for Peace of Thailand for the Exchange of Technical Information and Cooperation in Nuclear Safety Matters. This new Arrangement builds on an earlier Arrangement that both countries signed in 2012.

      Dr. Atchara  Wongsaengchan, Secretary General of the Office of Atoms for Peace (OAP) and Ms. Kristine L. Svinicki, Chairman of the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (USNRC) Signed the Arrangement between the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Office of Atoms for Peace of Thailand for the Exchange of Technical Information and Cooperation in Nuclear Safety Matters. The signing ceremony took place as a side event of the USNRC annual meeting on Regulatory Information Conference (RIC2017) which was held during 14 – 16 March 2017, at Rockvill, Marryland, Washington D.C., the United States.

     Prior to the signing of the arrangement, OAP Secretary General and USNRC Chairman had a bilateral meeting to discuss in terms of cooperation between the two countries in order to enhance and strengthen the sustainable cooperation on Nuclear Safety, Security, and Safeguards matters. The Thai side informed the U.S. side about the latest legislative developments in Thailand, including the entering into force of the Nuclear Energy for Peace Act 2016.

           Thailand by the Office of Atoms for Peace (OAP) organized the workshop on Reactor Site Application Reviews in Bangkok, Thailand during 18 – 21 April 2017. This workshop is under the International Regulation Development Partnership Project (IRDP) which is one of cooperation between the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (USNRC) and OAP.

          Mr. Pongkrit Siripirom, Director, Bureau of Nuclear Safety Regulation, on behalf of the OAP Secretary General said that it is a great opportunity for the workshop participants, from Suranaree University of Technology, Thailand Institute of Nuclear Technology (TINT), and OAP, to learn about the important aspects of nuclear site application reviews from the experienced instructors. Since the nuclear safety, security, and safeguards, are became a global issues which is a big challenge for us about the siting for nuclear facilities. This workshop is aimed to provide the participants with more understanding on site application review by the USNRC methods and tools, including understand relative safety risks of site hazards. In addition, the further workshop will be held in next few months in a topic of Reactor Construction Permit Application Reviews since Thailand is going to have a new research reactors, one at Suranaree University of Technology which is planned to start operating in possibly 2020, and one another will be located at Thailand Institute of Nuclear Technology (TINT).

         (29th May 2017) Mr. Pongkrit Siripirom, Acting Deputy Secretary General of the Office of Atoms for Peace (OAP), a Steering Committee Member to the ANSN said at the opening ceremony of the above event that the OAP as a ANSN Member State has responsibilities to regulate the use of nuclear energy, to protect operators, people and the environments from impact of the nuclear energy, and also to ensure the safety management of radioactive waste and spent fuel. Therefore, promoting the adherence of the Member States to the Joint Convention on the safety of spent fuel management and the safety of radioactive waste management is essential.

          OAP hosts this workshop together with the annual meeting to provide relevant personnel with better understanding of the obligations, and benefits of being a Contracting Party, to the Joint Convention. The knowledge gained by the experts and shared experiences by all participants in this event will be extremely useful for defining the activities or cooperation projects associated with the field of radioactive waste and spent fuel managements.

          More than 40 participants from the national nuclear and radiation regulatory organizations and relevant institutions of the ANSN member states participated in this event to build up capacity building, strengthening the network of nuclear safety, and highlight the principles of spent fuel and radioactive waste management in this region.
