Step towards nuclear cooperation between Canada and India

10 April 2013

An agreement signed between nuclear regulators in Canada and India has brought implementation of a full nuclear cooperation agreement between the two countries one step closer.

The 'appropriate arrangement,' signed by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) and India's Department of Atomic Energy on 21 March, establishes the modalities for a joint committee between Canada and India, which is mandated by the Nuclear Cooperation Agreement.

With the appropriate arrangement finalised, the governments of the two countries can now take steps to bring the full nuclear cooperation agreement into force. The agreement would allow Canadian companies to export nuclear items, including uranium, for peaceful uses, in accordance with Canada's nuclear non-proliferation policy.
