Peru: Second Workshop on Regulations for Sustainable Uranium Mining

July 16, 2019 - July 17, 2019

On July 16-17, in coordination with the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Energy Resources (ENR), CLDP will conduct a second workshop on regulations for sustainable uranium mining in Lima, Peru, for officials of Peru's Ministry of Energy and the Peruvian Institute of Nuclear Energy (IPEN). CLDP will organize the workshop in response to a direct request from Peruvian government counterparts following the first workshop on sustainable uranium mining regulations on May 16-17.  

IPEN is now in the process of adopting new rules and guidelines to permit the sustainable mining and beneficiation (milling) of uranium in Peru, as well as its transport to port and export therefrom. With support from ENR, CLDP has engaged IPEN in a work plan of technical assistance. In December 2018, CLDP and its experts conducted an initial assessment, and subsequently prepared two memoranda on IPEN's proposed regulatory framework, calling on expertise from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, and the private sector to review and provide comments to IPEN’s proposal for a regulatory framework comprising of five new technical standards and 22 uranium guidelines. 

CLDP's initial workshop on May 16-17, 2019, gave an overview of the U.S. experience in developing regulations for sustainable uranium mining, as well as comparative examples from Canada and Australia. CLDP experts covered basics of environmental quality standards, financial guarantees, and risk analysis. In response to audience members' questions and at the request of IPEN, the second workshop on July 16-17 will explore these topics in greater detail, with a focus on questions of public participation and social license.
