International Atomic Agency (IAEA)

Activities of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) were influenced by the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in the Ukrainian SSR on 26 April 1986, which underscored the international dimension of nuclear safety. The event gave the world its first real encounter with a severe nuclear power plant accident. Until then, nuclear power plants world-wide had, over three decades, accumulated some 4,000 reactor years of good safety and environmental records; the 1979 accident at Three Mile Island in the United States had involved no injuries or significant releases of radioactivity to the environment.
