Country Nuclear Power Profiles

The CNPP covers background information on the status and development of nuclear power programmes in countries having nuclear plants in operation and/or plants under construction, and in countries actively engaged in planning such programmes.

It reviews the organizational and industrial aspects of nuclear power programmes in participating countries, and provides information about the relevant legislative, regulatory and international frameworks in each country.

The CNPP compiles the current issues in the new environment within which the electricity and nuclear sector operates, i.e. energy policy, and privatization and deregulation in these sectors, the role of government, nuclear energy and climate change, and safety and waste management, which differ from country to country.
