New International Guidelines

We have recently made three new or updated International Guidelines available on our engineering page. These guidelines were developed in a collaborative effort by The International Nuclear Insurance Pools, and include:

  • Nuclear Safety, Operations and Third Party Liability (NSO TPL) – These guidelines were developed to achieve quality risk surveys and to inform our insured about nuclear insurers’ expectations. This Guideline was produced to address Nuclear Safety, Operations and Third Party Liability (NSO TPL) topics that the Pools have traditionally incorporated in insurance surveys where third party liability insurance is in place.
  • Nuclear Safety Culture – The International Nuclear Insurance Pools have developed a series of International Engineering Survey Guidelines to achieve quality risk surveys and to inform our insured about nuclear insurers’ expectations. Nuclear Safety Culture is a cross functional entity, and it is important that all surveyors – covering NSO TPL, Fire Protection and Machinery Breakdown – are aware of, and can observe and make judgements on the maturity of Nuclear Safety Culture within an organisation or site.
  • Fire Protection – The Pools have updated a series of International Engineering Survey Guidelines to achieve quality risk surveys and to inform our insured about nuclear insurers’ expectations. This fifth edition of the International Guidelines for the Fire Protection of Nuclear Power Plants is intended to reflect the status of the worldwide nuclear power industry and to offer guidance on the best current standards of fire prevention and protection for nuclear insurance risk assessments and engineering inspections. Where adopted, they should lead to improvements in fire protection both at plants that are currently insured and those seeking nuclear insurance for the first time.

NuclearInsurance.com

ANI has recently launched a completely redesigned website. Our new site is deigned to have a clean crisp look, to be easy to read and incorporates a responsive design that should display well on all devices.

Another goal of the redesign effort was to make the content on this site easier to find and easier to consume. Again, taking into account the number of people accessing the site via phones and tablets, we have tried to simplify navigation, reduce the need to scroll and present the material in a more intuitive manner.

If you have comments about this site, you can pass them along to us via our Contact ANI page.

ANI Social Media

In addition to our new website, ANI has also formally launched our social media program. ANI has been on Twitter @NucIns for almost five years, but our activity has been insignificant to date. We have also had a Facebook page for several years where the content has been lean at best. Both of these venues will be seeing greater activity in the coming months.

ANI will be using our Twitter account to highlight activity of our many partners in the insurance and utility industry space. We will be using our Facebook page to present a more personal view of our organization, some of our staff members and to extend the reach of this website. You can find links at the bottom of any page if you want to follow us on Twitter or Like us on Facebook.
