Petteri Tiippana, Director General of the Finnish Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority STUK has been appointed Vice Chair of WENRA. Mr Tiippana was appointed by the WENRA members during the recent WENRA autumn plenary meeting in Madrid, Spain.
Mr Tiippana will replace former Commissioner of the Spanish Nuclear Safety Counsil CSN Mr Antoni Gurgui.
«The Vice-Chairs support the work of WENRA in several important ways” says WENRA-Chair Hans Wanner from the Swiss Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate (ENSI). “They enable a shared workload for the Chair in everyday matters and representative tasks. But their most important function is as my partners for the exchange of ideas and strategic plans between the official plenary meetings of WENRA.”
WENRA has two Vice-Chairs, the other is Fredrik Hassel, Deputy Director General at the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM).
