  The Nuclear Safety Culture Policy Statement jointly issued by the National Nuclear Safety Administration (NNSA), the National Energy Administration (NEA) and the China Atomic Energy Authority (CAEA) on January 14, 2015 outlines the basic principles for a strong nuclear safety culture, detailing the essential attributes of such a culture and emphasizing the importance of cultivating and building on them. The statement calls for internalizing the key elements of a nuclear safety culture that puts safety first and translating them into conscious action of all individuals. It also calls for a set of safety and quality control mechanisms to strengthen the implementation of applicable rules and regulations, and continued efforts to strengthen human resources development in tandem with improved incentive mechanisms, so as to build a strong team of motivated individuals who understand the importance of safety, show a deep sense of scientific rigor and are technologically capable. It goes on to emphasize the need for all entities involved in nuclear-related activities to effectively integrate the basic concepts of a nuclear safety culture into all aspects of the operation and management of their facilities and projects, production of nuclear materials, and scientific research to build a rules-based mindset, strengthen accountability, ensure stringent verification and documentation, and encourage cooperation in a harmonious working environment.
