COMMUNICATION & PUBLIC RELATIONS
Andra has developed a number of business approaches that can be tailored to customers’ needs and special requirements. Depending on the nature of the customer’s establishment, level of experience in the waste management and strategic orientation guided by national policy, Andra’s experts can participate in every phase of your project, from siting and feasibility studies, to licensing and commissioning support, including designing the final cover, drafting monitoring plan and optimizing public acceptance levels. We can provide the expertise you need in the manner best adapted to the national framework and that of your project, and mindful of your legal or management constraints.
Service delivery: adjusted to your needs
Andra proposes an array of consulting methods: we can play a technical support role in a project concerning a radioactive waste repository design and construction; the agency’s safety experts can participate in the developing of a safety case, an Environmental Impact Assessment report, or, on the other hand, review an already drafted document. We can enable a know-how transfer concerning a an R&D programme, a site – or repository-specific inventory compilation, a waste package control procedure or some other element concerning the waste management that Andra has developed, tested, implemented and mastered at one of its facilities.
If training courses or scientific seminars are the knowledge transmission mean that suits you most, Andra will be happy to count you among our clients. Our Training programmes are developed “from-scratch” and adapted to the customer’s level and needs, ranging from “general beginners’” to “advanced specific”, from 2 days to 6 months, either in France on Andra’s facilities, or in the customer’s country on their own premises.
The following types of services proposed by Andra are further presented individually:
- Training and scientific seminars
- Consultancy on Radioactive Waste management issues
- Project development support
- Expertise and review
As a governmental agency based in a European country in the Schengen zone, Andra possesses all necessary legal and administrative references to ensure its eligibility in such projects worldwide.
Its triple quality certification ISO 9001 + 14001 / OHSAS 18001 attests to the high quality of all Andra’s activities and processes and enhances the project team references.
Andra can provide solid references on request, both national (internal) and international, to prove its experience and project management capacity.
