Abstract: Maintaining nuclear competencies in the nuclear industry and nuclear regulatory authorities will be one of the most critical challenges in the near future. The purposes of this paper are to identify the fundamental elements needed for an effective Knowledge Management (KM) system, share with nuclear industry operating organisation managers the lessons learned in the industry regarding KM and, where they are judged to be relevant, by organisations outside the nuclear industry, as well as provide guidance concerning the methods for KM implementation.

Keywords: key resource; knowledge-based assets; nuclear knowledge management; knowledge transfer; policies; strategies; nuclear industry; operating organisation; nuclear competencies; nuclear energy; nuclear power plants; NPP.
