The general objectives of the Uranium Group are to:
The group's primary area of work is producing the biennial publication of the Red Book but it also reviews other topics of interest, such as the environmental protection practices in the uranium mining industry. It also monitors all developments that could impact the uranium industry.
Members of the Uranium Group are nominated by governments. They include experts from government agencies and from industrial and research organisations with interests in uranium geology, mining and processing.
The "Red Book", is a biennial publication produced jointly by the NEA and the IAEA under the auspices of the joint NEA/IAEA Uranium Group. It is the only government-sponsored publication tracking world trends and developments in uranium resources, production and demand.
