The Ukrainian International Nuclear Safety Center Web Site is one of several Web Sites
dedicated to the open distribution of information related to international nuclear safety.
This Web Site was established in January 2001 at the Department of Nuclear Engineering of
The information available from this Web Site is linked
to corresponding information available from other INSC Web Sites, which
are currently located
in the USA at Argonne National Laboratory (US INSC),
in Moscow at the Russian International Nuclear Safety Center (RINSC),
in Lithuania at the Lithuanian Energy Institute in Kaunas (LEI), and
in Kazakhstan at the Nuclear Technology and Science Center in Almaty (NTSC).
USINSC: The International Nuclear Safety Center was established at Argonne
National Laboratory in 1995 to initiate international collaboration on nuclear
safety projects with the countries of the former Soviet Union as a direct result of the
RINSC: The Russian International Nuclear Safety Center was established in 1996 as an
independent organization under the Russian Ministery of Atomic Energy (MINATOM). Several
joint projects have been successfully completed in collaboration with the US INSC
and other international organizations.
LEI: An additional INSC Web Site was established at the Lithuanian Energy Institute in Kaunas,
Lithuania. This web site provides detailed information on Lithuanian nuclear safety
information and plant-specific information on the Ignalina nuclear power plant.
NTSC: The Nuclear Technology and Science Center in Almaty, Kazakhstan, provides
information on nuclear safety research in Kazakhstan. Special emphasis is placed
on the safety problems of nuclear power utilization and the effects on the environment
and human health in the Republic of Kazakhstan.
