       Ms.Ratchada Hempadtawee, the OAP deputy secretary general said “it is the importance of the peaceful uses of nuclear application and technology to the development of ASEAN region. Regardless of the benefits that nuclear technology provided, an accident may still possibly occur while handling those radioactive sources or nuclear materials for the applications. This type of incident might lead to devastating consequences to both the public and the environment resulting in the release of radioactive materials from nuclear facilities. The outcome of this off-site release would, subsequently, occur in the wide spread of radioactive contamination in the ecosystem. Therefore, it is important to prepare and build the capability in order to deal with such events. In this connection, the EC project - Enhancing emergency preparedness and response (EP&R) in ASEAN for radiological and nuclear emergencies through regional cooperation: technical support for decision making in collaboration with ASEANTOM, KIT, PDC-ARGOS and ENCO was established. The project aims to assist ASEANTOM member states to implement a Decision Support System (DSS) in both national and regional level. This installation of the DSS will help escalate EPR capability in ASEAN region”

          There are three activities in these two weeks at OAP as follows:

  • The training course on Models Used in Decision Support System, 16-20 September 2019.
  • The training course on customization of atmospheric dispersion model, 23-25 September 2019
  • The technical meeting on status of the data collection for customization and data upload in the DSS, 26-27 September 2019
