are the activities of the NSG?
The NSG holds the following meetings:
- The NSG Plenary works on the basis of consensus. Overall responsibility
for activities lies with the NSG Participating Governments who meet
once a year in a Plenary meeting.
- The Plenary can decide to set up working groups, with recommendations
by the Consultative Group, on matters such as the review of the NSG
Guidelines, the Annexes, the procedural arrangements, information
sharing and transparency activities.
- The NSG Plenary can also mandate the Chair to conduct outreach activities
with specific countries.
The CG is the NSG's standing intersessional working body, tasked to
hold consultations on issues associated with the Guidelines on nuclear
supply and the technical annexes. The CG takes its decisions by consensus.
Exchange Meeting (IEM)
and Enforcement Experts Meeting (LEEM)
IEM and LEEM precede the NSG Plenary and provide opportunities for
Participating Governments to share information and developments of
relevance to the objectives and content of the NSG Guidelines. Joint
sessions are dedicated to cases of common relevance.
Dedicated Meeting of Technical Experts
Upon mandate from Budapest 2009 Plenary to the CG, the DMTE started
in 2010 carrying out a holistic “Fundamental Review” of
NSG control lists.
