The renewal of licensing system for nuclear reactors in Indonesia
This paper describes the renewal of the licensing system for nuclear reactors in Indonesia stipulated in the new legislation and regulations. The new Act, Number 10 Year 1997 on Nuclear Energy, provides for licensing by the regulatory body of personnel and installations. The construction and operation of nuclear reactors and other nuclear installations, as well as the decommissioning of nuclear reactors, will be subjected to licensing. The requirements and procedures of the licence grant process are briefly defined in the new Government Regulation of the Republic of Indonesia Number 43 Year 2006 on Licensing of Nuclear Reactors as the implementation of the Act.
