OECD Multi-Sector Workshop on Innovative Regulation: Challenges and Benefits of Harmonising the Licensing Process for Emerging Technologies

14-18 December 2020

The OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) in collaboration with the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) will host an international, multi-sector workshop on 14-18 December 2020 on safely regulating innovative and disruptive technologies.

Access Partnership’s Director for Asia & US Kathryn Martin will be speaking as a panellist in Session 6: “Harmonisation of licensing: beyond regulators and licensees, how do the other stakeholders view the situation?” on 18 December 13:05 – 14:45 UTC+1.

Regulatory frameworks vary across each sector and from country to country. Each has its own set of stakeholders, safety standards, history, and legal framework. Despite these differences, regulatory frameworks share a common goal: to allow society to reap the benefits of a particular activity or technology (e.g. commercial flights, medical devices) while ensuring that the risks to individuals and society are maintained at an acceptable level. Sharing this strategic goal means that regulators from different sectors and countries can learn from one another by exchanging best practices.

Regulators in non-nuclear sectors have undergone recent changes that can help shape the collective intelligence of the regulatory community. This workshop will provide a forum for them to share their experiences in standardisation, design review, licensing and reporting systems, and international co-ordination.
