For more than 20 years, the IAEA has provided support and assistance to its Member States under the terms of the Convention on Assistance in the Case of a Nuclear Accident or Radiological Emergency, and has produced follow-up reports on radiological accidents that have occurred. A number of such accident reports have now been published and the findings and conclusions of these reports have provided a basis for safety improvements. This report provides detailed information on the accident that occurred in Nueva Aldea, Chile, in 2005. The findings and conclusions and lessons learned from this event will help to avoid similar occurrences by improving safety, and to minimize the consequences of any such events that do occur.
