  • Facilitating the application of safety standards through the validation of technical bases
  • Providing support to States in education, training, and methods and tools for the technical evaluation of safety cases
  • Facilitating comprehensive IAEA advisory and review services
  • Providing networking systems ensuring effective knowledge and information sharing, coordination and collaboration
  • Supporting States in implementing a sustainable nuclear power programme based on a strong foundation of safety, security and international legal instruments.
