This report is intended to serve as a practical guide to explain the organisational characteristics, attributes and ways of thinking that can help a nuclear regulator build and maintain trust with interested stakeholders and the public. It offers examples of actions and activities that can be taken to demonstrate those characteristics in practice.

The NEA encourages and challenges all established regulatory bodies to use it as a benchmark so that they continually strive to enhance their effectiveness in fulfilling their mission to protect people and the environment. It aims to be a resource for countries with existing, mature regulators, but can also be used for training and developing staff in newcomer countries currently in the process of developing and maintaining a trusted nuclear safety regulator.
