ENEC’s commitment to nuclear safety and non-proliferation


ENEC is developing the UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Program in line with its commitments on non-proliferation, as set out in the UAE’s 2008 policy on nuclear energy.

The Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant has been constructed and developed with complete operational transparency, in line with UAE Nuclear Law, and the regulatory requirements of the national Regulator, the Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation (FANR), to ensure the plant meets the highest standards of nuclear safety and security.

Furthermore, the UAE has worked directly with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and World Association of Nuclear Operators (WANO) to ensure that the UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Program conforms to the international standards set by the nuclear energy industry. Since 2010, the UAE has welcomed more than 40 international missions and reviews from the IAEA and WANO to the UAE, highlighting our strong partnerships with the global nuclear energy industry and commitment to transparency with responsible nations.

We welcome visits from the media publications that have issued recent stories on the Barakah project to witness the high levels of safety and security at the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant.
