The RCA (Regional Co-operative Agreement for Research, Development and Training Related to Nuclear Science and Technology for Asia and the Pacific) agreement [English & Extension : Français : Español : Russian : Chinese : Arabic ] provides a framework for Asian Member States to intensify their collaboration through programmes and projects focused on the specific shared needs of its members. Apart from a few general programme provisions, it contains only procedural and organizational rules that set up the mechanisms for implementing agreed activities. RCA does not commit States to a predetermined set of projects. RCA is a formal inter-governmental agreement which entered into force in 1972.
