Introduction
 
Since its withdrawal from the United Nations In 1971, Taiwan has been unable to participate in many important nuclear energy organizations. However, to attain standards similar to those of the advanced nuclear countries in relevant technologies such as nuclear safety control, radiation protection, emergency response, environmental monitoring, and radwaste management, the Atomic Energy Council (AEC) continues to try hard in acquiring and making use of nuclear expertise and experiences of the advanced nations to ensure nuclear safety. The following measures have been employed successfully through bilateral and multilateral cooperation to achieve this objective: 1) sponsoring or co-sponsoring international nuclear energy conferences; 2) attending international cooperation programs and projects; 3) and expanding cooperation and exchange of personnel visits with international nuclear energy-related associations. To further secure and enhance nuclear safety, AEC has dispatched nuclear energy experts to station at the United States, Austria, and OECD/NEA to assist in collection of the latest nuclear energy information and technology while broadening cooperation with other countries.
In regards to nuclear safeguards, despite Taiwan's departure from the United Nations and therefore its subordinate International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Taiwan remains committed to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT). To date, Taiwan is still part of the international nuclear safeguards system and accepts IAEA nuclear safeguards inspections in accordance of the trilateral nuclear safeguards agreement among Taiwan, the United States, and IAEA.
