HAF-604: China Will Continue to be an Attractive Market for Suppliers of Nuclear Facilities and Components in the Future21. February 2017
According to a study by BMI Research, China could be the world’s largest producer of nuclear power by 2026, surpassing the current world leader USA.
In 2015 about 26 gigawatts of electricity were generated by nuclear power plants. Estimations show that one year later, in 2016, 34 gigawatts were generated by nuclear power plants.
It is currently estimated that nuclear energy will triple by 2026, to over 100 million kilowatts.
China declared long-term goal is to continue to become less dependent on coal and other fossil fuels. According to the International Atomic Energy Agency, China has 20 new reactors under construction as of right now, with another 176 additional reactors already being planned.
Due to the massive expansion of its nuclear power sector, China will continue to have numerous opportunities for suppliers of safety-related, nuclear components.
Foreign manufacturers will need the proper registration of their safety related products before they can ship them to China. They must have a valid HAF-604 registration before shipping.
Most manufacturers don ‘t have the expertise, contacts in China and language skills in order to prepare the necessary paperwork for a HAF-604 registration with the China National Nuclear Safety Administration (NNSA). The HAF-604 guidelines (Supervision and Management Regulations for Imported Civilian Nuclear Equipment) have been established with the goal to be able to better monitor imported safety relevant components, when used in a nuclear power plant.
China Certification Corporation assists manufacturers of equipment for nuclear power plants to obtain the HAF 604 registration successfully.
