Novosibirsk, Dec 1: Inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency have completed examining the quality and conditions of storage of nuclear fuel produced by the Novosibirsk chemical concentrates plant for Iran's Bushehr nuclear power plant, NCCP spokesman Sergei Guryanov said.

The inspection began on November 26, Mr Guryanov told Russian news agency Itar-Tass yesterday.

IAEA experts took selective measurements of 30 fuel assemblies and put IAEA metallic seals on transport containers with fuel bound for Iran, he said.

The Novosibirsk chemical concentrates plant produced 100 tonnes of fuel for the Bushehr nuclear power plant that is being built in Iran by Russian specialists, he added.

The plant's officials did not disclose the date of dispatch.

Earlier, NCCP director-general Vladimir Razin said this will happen, 'when we get relevant instructions.' The plant is a part of the Tvel corporation that produces uranium and supplies nuclear fuel for different types of nuclear reactors, Mr Guryanov said.
