"Recommendations for Limiting Transfers of Enrichment and Reprocessing Technologies"

Policy Brief

By Fred McGoldrick, Former Associate, Project on Managing the Atom, May 2011–June 2013

For several years, the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) has been unable to reach a consensus on the adoption of revised guidelines for its members. The most contentious issue is how to strengthen restraints on the transfer of enrichment and reprocessing (E&R) technologies in a manner that would be acceptable to all NSG members, and credible to the major exporting states and the nuclear industry. This issue will be back on the agenda this month when the NSG meets in plenary session.
