Thank you for your interest in the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG), and welcome to the recently updated NSG Website.
The NSG is a group of forty-eight nuclear supplier countries that seeks to contribute to the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons through the implementation of two sets of Guidelines for nuclear exports and nuclear-related exports.The aim of the NSG Guidelines is to ensure that nuclear trade for peaceful purposes does not contribute to the proliferation of nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices, and that international trade and cooperation in the nuclear field is not hindered unjustly in the process. The Guidelines and additional information on the NSG, including the results of recent Plenary Meetings and an IAEA Information Circular document titled “The Nuclear Suppliers Group: Its Guidelines, Origins, Structure, and Role”, (INFCIRC/539 rev. 8)can be found on this website. You will also find good practices documents including the recently added “NSG Awareness Raising Document” in the “National Practices” section, which provides insight and information on the importance of responsible nuclear supplier behaviour and effective export controls.
