Direction de Sûreté des Installations Nucléaires (DSIN)

The DSIN is the French nuclear safety authority (it also uses the acronym ASN). It defines general safety targets in the nuclear sector. It ensures that the exploiting companies take the necessary measures to achieve the targets and it notably grants exploitation authorizations to the different nuclear facilities. It is jointly supervised by the Ministry of the Environment and the State Secretariat for Industry

DSIN - Sous-Direction Cycle du combustible, Transport (1st sub-division)

This sub-division deals with questions in relation with the fuel cycle and transport of nuclear materials. In particular, it examines applications introduced by COGEMA, Transnucléaire and the French-Belgian Fuel Manufacturing Company, FBFC.

Institut de Protection et de Sûreté Nucléaire (IPSN)
Département de Recherches en Sécurité (DRS)

The Nuclear Protection and Safety Institute (IPSN) is the DSIN's technical back up. It undertakes research in all of the disciplines necessary to the control of risks within the nuclear facilities. The Cadarache-based Security Research Department (DRS) deals with the nuclear reactors security, carrying out studies by simulating situations of accidents.

COGEMA-Vélizy (Headquarters)

COGEMA, Compagnie générale des matières nucléaires, is an industrial company, exercising its activity in a context of competition. Its capital is held by the French State, through the CEA (74.7%), and by private groups: TOTAL-FINA-ELF with 14.5%, ERAP with 7.6% and Technip 3.2% (the latter has recently withdrawn from the capital). COGEMA is specializing mainly in products and services linked to the nuclear fuel cycle, from uranium extraction to the production of new fuels using plutonium resulting from spent fuel reprocessing.

COGEMA-Cadarache

The Cadarache site is part of the fuel cycle production facilities held by COGEMA. The Cadarache production complex produces several types of fuel adapted to different existing reactors. The Plutonium Technology Facility (Atelier de Technologie du Plutonium (ATPu)), run by COGEMA, is located on the Cadarache site.

Cadarache CEN

The Cadarache Nuclear Research Center (Centre d'Etudes Nucléaires de Cadarache (CEN)) belongs to the CEA, R&D state body. Legally, the CEA owns but also exploits the Cadarache site. In fact, COGEMA exploits the CFCa for industrial purposes only, taking on production management, while the CEA is responsible for safety.

Greenpeace France

Greenpeace continues its campaign against spent fuel reprocessing and the use of MOX. In 2000, it entrusted WISE-Paris with a survey on the recycling of nuclear materials (http://www.wise-paris.org/english/listingpublications/u_purecyclingconcl.html).

Forum Plutonium

Forum Plutonuim is a network of organizations and individuals, created in 1994, to promote the distribution of information concerning the plutonium industry, and initiate a counter-expertise of the consequences of this activity, particularly in France. Jean-Pierre Morichaud, Secretary of Forum Plutonium, is a member of the High Council for Nuclear Safety and Information (Conseil Supérieur de la Sûreté et de l'Information Nucléaires (CSSIN).
