Recommendation No. 4:
The absence of an independent in depth assessment can partly be compensated by procedural rules. The peer review process as proposed by ENSREG is one step to give more transparency to the process.
The peer review process should be strengthened by a clear structure of the reports (recommendation 2), the documentation of the applied assessment criteria, and by an open access not only of the operators’ basic reports and of the national-reports but also of the underlying documents for the public, for the non-governmental organizations and their experts. The results of the peer review process (questions and answers) should also be fully documented and be published.
