Abstract

Objectives: To facilitate the prompt provision of assistance in the event of a nuclear accident or radiological emergency.

Summary or provisions: Parties undertake to co-operate between themselves and with the International Atomic Energy Agency (thereinafter referred to as the Agency) to facilitate prompt assistance in the event of a nuclear accident or radiological emergency (art. 1.1). If a Party needs assistance in the event of a nuclear accident or radiological emergency, whether or not such accident or emergency originates within its territory, jurisdiction or control, it may call for such assistance from any other State Party, directly or through the Agency, and from the Agency (art. 2.1). A Party to which request for such assistance is directed is to promptly decide and notify the requesting State Party where it is in a position to render the assistance requested, and the scope and terms of the assistance that might be rendered (art. 2.3). A Party may request assistance relating to medical or temporary relocation into the territory of another State Party of people involved in a nuclear accident or radiological emergency (art. 2.5).
