The IAEA has developed Safety Packages based on SSG-16 to assist in the establishment of a nuclear safety infrastructure. The Safety Packages are a collection of the information contained in SSG-16 with Safety Standards, Peer Reviews, IAEA Assistance (Education & Training, Advisory Services, Revelant Publications) and Knowledge Networks outlined. The packages are devided into 11 Thematic Modules, following and merging the 20 elements of SSG-16.

The workshops are offered by the IAEA targeting primarily the staff of regulatory bodies but also applicable to other governmental organizations, operating organizations and technical support organizations.
