IAEA Catalogue of Services for Nuclear Infrastructure Development
The IAEA offers a wide range of services to Member States embarking on a new nuclear power programme or expanding an existing one.
A new IAEA Catalogue of Services for Nuclear Infrastructure Development helps Member States to identify and request IAEA assistance for national organizations at different stages of the development or expansion of a nuclear power programme.
The IAEA Catalogue of Services is presented in two tables. It is based on the IAEA Milestones Approach for nuclear power infrastructure development, documented in ‘Milestones in the Development of a National Infrastructure for Nuclear Power’ (IAEA Nuclear Energy Series NG-G-3.1).

Main Features and Content
The two tables allow users to identify and select available IAEA services by:
- The three phases of the IAEA Milestones Approach, or
- Organizations typically involved in the development of a nuclear power programme: the government/ Nuclear Energy Programme Implementing Organization (NEPIO), the regulatory body and the owner operator of a nuclear power plant.
The catalogue includes information on the following IAEA services:
- Workshops/Training Courses
- Expert Missions/Advisory Services
- Review Missions/Peer Reviews
- Training tools and networks
The catalogue lists both existing IAEA services and those being developed for the 19 issues to be addressed in developing a national nuclear infrastructure.
Each existing service is linked to a relevant IAEA webpage that either describes a particular service or gives practical examples of the type of assistance that the Agency offers (e.g. workshops or missions).
The owners of these webpages can be contacted for more detailed information or to request assistance.
The IAEA Catalogue of Services will be updated regularly.

Reference to IAEA's Programme
The IAEA Catalogue of Services for Member States embarking on a nuclear power programme is part of the IAEA Action Plan on Nuclear Safety adopted in September 2011 by the IAEA's Board of Governors and subsequently unanimously endorsed by the 55th IAEA General Conference. As part of the IAEA document “The Secretariat Activities for the Implementation of the IAEA Action Plan on Nuclear Safety”, the following activity is included under Action 8:
“IAEA Secretariat to update a modular package for assistance in the nuclear infrastructure development, including the documentation, expert missions, dedicated workshops and guidance to be prepared, reviewed or updated taking into account the lessons learned from Fukushima and experiences so far, and make available to Member States in an integrated manner”.
