Chapter Summary

The movement of nuclear material and technology around the world constitutes an important factor that should be addressed, including its trade and the measures that the suppliers have taken so far, nationally and internationally, to prevent its misuse. The non-proliferation and the nuclear supplier regimes are defined by the policy of "haves" and "have-nots". This chapter discusses the evolution of international nuclear commerce. During the 1950s and 1960s, the US occupied a dominant position in the global nuclear market. The chapter also discusses the role of supplier groups in controlling the transfer of nuclear material and equipment to Non-Nuclear Weapon State(s) (NNWS). Concerned with the threat of nuclear proliferation, suppliers formed organisations and committees to restrict the movement of nuclear material, equipment and technology around the world. The chapter describes the role of emerging suppliers and the future of the supplier regime.

Keywords: international nuclear commerce; non-nuclear weapon state(s) (NNWS); nuclear material; supplier groups; supplier regime
