Performance Measurement

The U.S. team has established end points that define the successful completion of projects in each technical area. A project reaches its end point when the host country, its nuclear support organizations, and its nuclear power plants can sustain safety achievements and build upon them to meet internationally accepted nuclear safety practices. These end points are measurable, achievable targets.

The U.S. team defined the end points by weighing several factors for each project: its safety impact, its cost-effectiveness, the time needed to achieve results, and the ability of the host country to sustain the safety achievements over the long term. The end points are documented in the cooperative safety effort's Strategy Document.

Future Direction

Through their joint efforts, the United States and the host countries are reducing risks at Soviet-designed nuclear power plants.

U.S. personnel will continue working to meet the following goals:

  • Transfer modern technologies and methods to enable each host country to establish and maintain a strong safety infrastructure.

  • Engender a nuclear safety culture in which safety takes priority over power production.

  • Provide opportunities for U.S. commercial companies to establish joint ventures and ongoing nuclear safety partnerships with the host countries.

  • Promote safer plant operations over time.

  • Accelerate efforts to reduce risks at Chornobyl and support the plant's shutdown and deactivation.
