Emergency communication to the public

The IAEA works with Member States and international organizations to release consistent, accurate and timely information to the public during a nuclear and radiological emergency.

The IAEA monitors the international news media to identify relevant sources of information, inconsistencies against authoritative information and rumours, and requests clarification as appropriate from the relevant State. Timely, factually correct, objective and easily understandable information (including analysis of available official information, assessment of possible consequences and prognosis of possible emergency progression) will be published on the IAEA’s public web site or made available to the news media, if appropriate. The Agency makes efforts to ensure that the released information is coordinated with relevant Member States and international organizations.
