The globally accessible GNSSN website is a set of existing networks and information resources that support work related to nuclear safety and security. GNSSN, provides open access to general information on nuclear safety and nuclear security on a common, collaborative platform designed so that experts can exchange and share information easily and quickly.

The Global Nuclear Safety and Security Network (GNSSN) is one of the elements of the Global Nuclear Safety and Security Framework (GNSSF), related to the sharing of information and knowledge among the global expert community.The GNSSN is a set of existing networks and information resources i.e. internationally accessible information and data sources, whether open or password protected.This includes active or latent interactions between them that can support work related to nuclear safety and security matters.The Vision and Mission of GNSSN was set up with the aim of ensuring that critical knowledge, experience, and lessons learned about nuclear safety and security are exchanged as broadly as they need to be. Principles

In 2008, a prototype platform for the GNSSN was established. The aim is to have all safety related networks and information resources made visible and available through links on this platform. Network enhancement should be in accordance with the following principles:

Ultimate responsibility for the content and quality remains with the respective providers of the information and network operators (process owners); Process owners recognize that they are part of a broader community of networks; Continuous efforts are made by process owners to make the network visible and conducive to international co-operation; There is a striving for common solutions, using best practices and advanced technologies, and for optimal use of resources; Agreed-upon commitments are adhered to;

The sustainability and continuous improvement of the GNSSN are ensured.
