Report INSAG-23 by the International Nuclear Safety Group, IMPROVING THE INTERNATIONAL SYSTEM FOR OPERATING EXPERIENCE FEEDBACK, states:

“In developing the international OEF system and the process for its implementation, it is important to keep in mind the central purpose of OEF. Writing reports and collecting data are meaningful only when there is a direct coupling to risk reduction and the enhancement of operating safety.

Therefore, event reporting needs to be connected to programmes that transform the lessons learned into risk reducing measures, such as improvements in design, management of plant operations and ageing, operator training, operating procedures and safety culture.”
