Over the past few decades, the nuclear supply chain has experienced a number of significant changes. As nuclear power plants continue to operate longer than originally planned due to life extension programs, the availability of suitable spare parts has become limited as many of the original manufacturers are no longer in business. In response, facility operators are looking to more readily use commercial grade items – while needing to ensure that they are not counterfeit, fraudulent or suspect items. At the same time, the increasing reliance on digital systems combined with the continued globalization of the IT industry has increased the need to ensure cyber security is maintained throughout the entire supply chain. Additionally, the use of service suppliers, such as contractor personnel and transportation, necessitates the need for procurement processes that consider nuclear security risks. Finally, in countries embarking on nuclear power programmes for the first time, there is a desire to localise as much of the supply chain as possible. This too may introduce risks to nuclear safety and security if the necessary qualification and oversight processes are not in place.
WINS organised a 2-day online workshop to review the main security considerations for supply chain management in the nuclear industry including cybersecurity challenges.
The workshop covered the following areas:
Introduction of the nuclear supply chain and supply chain security
Cybersecurity and the supply chain
Security of service suppliers
Embarking countries and the supply chain
WINS will welcome participation from the following experts and organisations:
