Meeting of Contracting Parties to Convention on Nuclear Safety Being Held in Vienna, April 15-26 2002

Convention on Nuclear Safety

The second Review Meeting of Contracting Parties to the Convention on Nuclear Safety is taking place over the next two weeks at the Headquarters of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna, under the presidency of Mr. Miroslav Gregoric, Director of the Slovenian Nuclear Safety Authority.

The Convention, which entered into force in October 1996, foresees such meetings at regular intervals. It provides for a "peer review" process by which national reports on nuclear safety from individual States that are Contracting Parties are submitted for collective examination by other Contracting Parties, and replies provided to questions raised.

To date, the Convention has been signed by sixty-five States and ratified by fifty-four.

Since the peer review process will take the full two week period, no public statements are foreseen by participants or by the IAEA Secretariat on the content of the discussions while they are underway. At the close of the meeting, on 26 April 2002, a Summary Report will be made available to the public.

The first such Review Meeting was held in April 1999.
