International Convention on Nuclear Security

Ambassador John Bernhard, Ambassador Kenneth C. Brill, Dr. Anita Nilsson, and Dr. Shin Chang-Hoon | March 2015


On March 24, 2015, at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, the Nuclear Security Governance Experts Group announced the release of an International Convention on Nuclear Security.

This convention establishes an effective and sustainable international legal mechanism that allows for continuous improvement and adaptation of the global nuclear security regime. It addresses dangerous weaknesses that exist in the current regime by setting clear international security standards and allowing for the necessary assessment of their implementation. It supports the important work of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and is open to all nations.
