Requesting assistance through the IAEA
Assistance in the response to nuclear or radiological incidents and emergencies can be obtained through the IAEA.
Parties to the Convention on Assistance in the Case of a Nuclear Accident or Radiological Emergency (Assistance Convention) have undertaken to cooperate amongst themselves and with the IAEA to facilitate the prompt provision of assistance in the case of a nuclear accident or radiological emergency, in order to mitigate its consequences.
The Permanent Mission or the relevant Competent Authority is the Government representative that is expected to request assistance under the terms of the Assistance Convention.
Assistance can be requested by telephone, fax or by completing the Request for Assistance (RFA) form on USIE.
