The first section describes the fundamental structure of corporate governance, including basic roles and responsibilities within an organisation that is expected to assess and manage risks and liability. The second section discusses the larger nuclear security architecture, which consists of international bodies and national authorities that help provide guidance and establish the regulatory framework for nuclear security and the ways in which nuclear operators’ responsibilities fall under this scheme. The third section summarises basic nuclear insurance and liability concepts.
