What is Transparency?

The term "transparency" has been widely used to describe different monitoring or observation activities associated with safeguarding existing inventories of nuclear materials as well as safely disposing of nuclear materials that have no further economic or strategic viability. The fundamental principle of transparency has been to share pertinent information with interested parties.

The term transparency, as used in the context of peaceful uses of nuclear energy, is best defined as "a cooperative process of providing information to all interested parties so that they can independently assess the safety, security, and legitimate management of nuclear materials."
