The SMP is now availible for download by clicking the image below


Welcome to the IAEA Coordination Group for Uranium Legacy Sites - CGULS

Under the auspices of the IAEA, a secretariat has been formed to support a network of national and international organizations and institutions concerned with the safe management of wastes at uranium production legacy sites primarily in Central Asia but other Member States as well. The organizations form a Network for information exchange, coordination and optimization of resources of those interested and working on reducing risk posed by these types of sites.

Network Objectives

  • Providing a forum for information exchange and provision of technical advice; and
  • Co-ordinating the actions of the members to maximize synergies and avoid duplication of effort;
  • To work on facilitating solutions for Member States currently planning for remediation of uranium legacy sites.
