At present, the situation of the epidemic prevention and control is still severe. We should take both the resumption of work and production and the epidemic prevention and control seriously. In accordance with the nuclear safety law, the South China Nuclear and Radiation Oversight Station (hereinafter referred to as “MEEP/SCNROS”) of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment has reviewed and assessed the refuelling reports of the third refuelling complex overhaul (RCOH) of the No. 1 power unit in Fangchenggang Nuclear Power Plant and other documents according to oversight outline and RCOH oversight plan, conducted routine oversight on projects such as regular experiments, examination of equipment in operation, repair and maintenance, major modifications and experiments of safety, and organised an inspection group to carry out the nuclear safety inspection at the control site prior to the first criticality after RCOH from April 13-16.
To ensure the implementation of both the epidemic prevention and control and the supervision and inspection, MEEP/SCNROS upheld the general working requirements of “Strictness, prudence, carefulness, and reality”, and under the precondition of abiding by the local anti-epidemic policies and well conducting personal protective measures, optimized inspection methods by combining on-line communication and exchange assistance by internet video with on-site verification, reviewed RCOH materials, checked plant, and verified RCOH implementation, quality management, radiation management, criticality preparation and the implementation of requirements of nuclear safety management one by one; MEEP/SCNROS required the operators to improve their politic consciousness, coordinate epidemic prevention and control and safety production, increase the feedback frequency of nuclear power station construction and operation, in particular, strengthen the cold source safety during the epidemic, in order to provide power supply for the resumption of work and production in economy; MEEP/SCNROS urged the operators to reinforce awareness of risks and bottom-line thinking, making sure that nuclear safety risks and abnormal conditions would be controlled correctly as they are of low-risk and as it is early; MEEP/SCNROS also strengthened responsibility assumption, dividing all the nuclear responsibilities to each subject.
A RCOH and an inspection are only the miniature of winning the fight of epidemic prevention and control and of coordinating the epidemic prevention and control and the nuclear and radiation safety supervision. MEEP/SCNROS will continue to conclude experiences, optimize and improve procedures, coordinate resources, improve supervision efficiency, and further urge the operators to shoulder their subject responsibilities of nuclear safety by problems, making sure the safe operation of power units.
