Recently, the general contract for the main construction and commissioning of the Rooppur power plant was signed between Bangladesh and the Russian Federation. The contract price is $12.65 billion, 90% of which will be sanctioned by Russia with a state credit contract, will also be signed very soon. The supervisory body should be strengthened. The Bangladesh Atomic Energy Regulations Act 2011 project should be adopted as soon as possible with a view to the creation of an independent regulatory authority. The regulator should be prepared to have the site license issued. An agreement is being drawn up with the Russian regulator on training and technical assistance during the licensing of the first nuclear power plant in Bangladesh and is expected to be concluded. Eighteen regulations adopted as part of the mission, eight of which have already been developed, are expected to be finalized and adopted. In 2000, the Government of Bangladesh adopted the National Nuclear Action Plan (NPP) to achieve the following objectives for the rapid implementation of the nuclear project in the country. The main objective of this document is to identify: the government has created a technical committee for the NPP Rooppur, under the leadership of the Minister of Science and Technology (MOST).

The secretaries, the heads of the relevant organizations, the academics, the president and the representatives of the CCEC are the members of the technical committee. This committee will take the necessary steps to define the organizational structure of the implementation phase of the Roopur power plant project. The Committee will take initiatives to develop comprehensive documents for the review of the Roopur Office Cabinet Committee, taking into account several issues, including how projects are implemented, technology transfer, project implementation period, funding mechanism and regulatory issues. The technical committee assumes responsibility for the proposed NPAB. Currently, this committee is completing the decision-making phases of the IAEA`s key documents projects. Research reactor: A 3 MW research reactor has been installed for research, staff training and the production of short-lived radioisotopes for medical purposes. It should be noted that local participation in the implementation of the country`s first major nuclear power plant, although the country`s first major nuclear facility, has been significant. Appropriate research laboratories based on reactor facilities, such as radioisotope production, neutron activation analysis, neutron radiography, neutron spectrometry for elementary and structural material analysis, are being developed. During the 2008 parliamentary elections, all major parties made a declaration on the implementation of the nuclear project and the national parliament took a decision in 2010 on the immediate implementation of the nuclear power plant.
