“Nuclear safety is primarily the responsibility of licensees in individual States. But accidents can transcend borders, so effective international cooperation on nuclear safety is vital,” said IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano at the opening of the conference.

“For an organization to achieve a high level of nuclear safety, it must establish a culture in which people are encouraged to continuously look for improvement, and feel able to challenge assumptions and question received wisdom. In short, a culture that puts safety first,” he added.
