India Civil Nuclear Agreement

1 August 2008: The IAEA Board of Governors unanimously adopts an India-specific safeguards agreement. Japan is an important player in the civil nuclear market and a nuclear power deal like this «will facilitate cooperation with U.S.-based nuclear power plant producers, such as Westinghouse Electric Corporation and GE Energy Inc.» [50] to facilitate and improve the prospects for the construction of nuclear power plants in India, as these two conglomerates have Japanese investments. Japan has a «virtual monopoly» on the reactor elements of the AP100 and EPR reactors, such as safety components and domes. [51] After the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011[2], the nuclear industry experienced an almost global crisis. With institutions such as the IAEA, the main concern for countries that conclude civil nuclear agreements with India is the threat of nuclear disasters such as Chernobyl and Fukushima. .
