The Nuclear Energy and Decommissioning Division of TUV SUD will host the first International Nuclear Supply Chain Symposium in Munich, Germany in 2022. The Symposium was planned for 2020, but we have decided to postpone it until spring 2022.

The aim of the symposium is to bring together manufacturers and suppliers, NPP owners and operators, authorities and regulators, vendors and academic organizations. Through the exchange of information and experiences, the participants of the symposium will have the opportunity to benefit from insights into the qualification of equipment for the nuclear industry, to discuss the special requirements for quality management in the nuclear supply chain, to identify and deepen current challenges and to network with competent partners from the entire supply chain.

Meet with experts in the field of global nuclear supply chains for lively discussions and lessons learned. Exchange and share your experiences in the development and management of an international nuclear supply chain, both for new nuclear construction projects and for plants in long-term operation.

The final program will be published by the end of May.
