Arab Network of Nuclear Regulators

Arab Network of Nuclear Regulators

The Arab Network of Nuclear Regulators (ANNuR) was created in 2010 with the purpose of strengthening and harmonizing the regulatory infrastructure in Arab countries as well as exchanging regulatory knowledge and experiences with other international and regional networks under the IAEA Global Nuclear Safety and Security Network (GNSSN). The IAEA and the ANNuR signed practical arrangements in April 2014 that constitute a clear framework for the increased cooperation between the two organizations.
