(sna) Singapore submits papers to International Atomic Energy Agency for first nuclear energy facility in SEA

Singapore has deposited the instrument of accession to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)’s Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Material (CPPNM) and the instrument of acceptance to its 2005 Amendment. Singapore will become a party to the CPPNM 30 days after the instrument of accession is deposited with the IAEA, said the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (MEWR) in a press release today.

Its scope was broadened through its 2005 Amendment to include the protection of nuclear facility and material for peaceful domestic use, storage and transport.
