The NRC conducts confirmatory regulatory research in partnership with nuclear safety agencies and institutes in more than 30 countries. NRC participation in these cooperative programs allows broader sharing of data obtained from physical facilities not available in the United States. It also enhances the NRC's ability to make sound, realistic regulatory and safety decisions based on worldwide scientific knowledge, and promotes the effective and efficient use of agency resources.
