attention to recruitment and choice of employees, their training and their professional
growth over the year 2001. In the framework of training, the employees could improve their
professional and computer skills and the level of languages. The experts and inspectors

persons) were employed by UJD: 30 women and 51 men. Overall percentage of employed women
represented 37%. 40 employees, including 5 women, were executing the direct inspection
activities over the nuclear safety.

university degree, 21% are the secondary-school graduates and 2% the training-school
EMPLOYEES' QUALIFICATION STRUCTURE (AS OF 31 DECEMBER 2001)
In 2001, 10 employees
including one trainee left UJD and 5 new employees were accepted to replace those leaving.
Apart from these new employees, 4 trainees were accepted by UJD for the period of one year
pursuant to new resolution of the Slovak Government.
Over the year 2001, no significant changes in the employees’ age structure were observed
in comparison with the previous year. Representing 36% of overall number of employees, the
most numerous group was represented by employees at the age of 41-50 years. The second
place belonged to employees at the age of 51-60 years representing 26% of overall number
of employees. This statistics proves, that the state supervision was provided mostly by
employees with the long-standing practice, i.e., by employees at the age of 41-60 years
representing 62% of an overall number of employees. Other age categories were represented
as follows: 23% of all employees at the age of 20-30 years, 10% of all employees at the
age of 31-40 years an 5% of all employees at the age over 60 years.
UJD as the central state body has an independent status and acts independently in the
budgetary process, i.e., it has its own budgetary chapter with incomes and outcomes
directly connected with the State Budget.
In 2001, the state regulation and supervision over the nuclear safety was funded from the
State Budget amounting to SKK 77,911 thousands. Apart from these funds, UJD used the
extra-budgetary funds from abroad (from the Swiss Government through the SWISSLOVAK,
SWISSUP Project, Evita Project, IAEA Projects and from the Temporary Secretariat of
Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organisation) amounting to SKK 1,773 thousands. Overall
expenditures as of 31 December 2001 amounted to SKK 79,684 thousands.

funding was following (in thousands of SKK):
amount of budgetary funds, the amount of SKK 71,394 thousands was used as
running expenditures and the amount of SKK 6,517 thousands was used for capital assets
acquisition. Total amount of finance from the State Budget did not exceed the limit of
available funds, i.e. the amount of SKK 3,685 thousands from the budgetary chapter was not
drawn. This situation is connected with unrealised foreign transfers in favour of the
international organisations (payment obligation did not arise) as well as with lower use
of other current expenditures.
Current foreign transfers amounting to SKK 24,967 thousands represented the largest
portion of budgetary expenditures, i.e. transfer to EBRD on Chernobyl containment
renovation, two contributions to IAEA Technical Co-operation Fund and the membership
contribution to OECD Halden Reactor Project (OECD/HRP).
