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 IAEA has recently initiated the preparation of the IAEA Fukushima Comprehensive Report which will be published by year-end 2014.
