|Name:||IAEA Safety Standards Series No. SF-1 Fundamental Safety Principles. Safety Fundamentals.|
The IAEA’s Statute authorizes the Agency to establish safety standards to protect health and minimize danger to life and property. Safety standards are only effective, if they are properly applied in practice. Regulating nuclear and radiation safety is a national responsibility, and many Member States have decided to adopt the IAEA’s safety standards for use in their national regulations. For the Contracting Parties to the various international safety conventions, IAEA standards provide a consistent, reliable means of ensuring the effective fulfillment of obligations under the conventions. The standards are also applied by designers, manufacturers and operators around the world to enhance nuclear and radiation safety in power generation, medicine, industry, agriculture, research and education. The IAEA takes seriously the enduring challenge for users and regulators everywhere: that of ensuring a high level of safety in the use of nuclear materials and radiation sources around the world.
