IAEA Action Plan on Nuclear Safety
A Ministerial Conference on Nuclear Safety adopted a Declaration that requested the Director General to develop a draft Action Plan on Nuclear Safety. In September 2011, the IAEA Action Plan on Nuclear Safety was adopted by the IAEA's Board of Governors and subsequently unanimously endorsed by the IAEA General Conference. The ultimate goal of the Action Plan is to strengthen nuclear safety worldwide.
The Secretariat together with over 40 Member States and several international organizations are working on The IAEA Report on the Fukushima Daiichi Accident. Formal publication of the Report is planned for the 59th IAEA General Conference in September 2015.
