   and built strong global network.
○ Korea’s leadership and role have been strengthened in setting and discussing global nuclear safety standards.
○ The NSSC contributed to establishing nuclear energy infrastructures in developing countries by sharing Korea’s know-how
   and experience in safety regulations.

 - In the IAEA, the NSSC increased Korean experts’ participation and contribution to the specialized fields of general
   conference, safety regulation(IRRS, IPPAS, CNS), nuclear security(safeguards, physical protection, and MSSP), etc.
 - Through the experts’ working groups including OECD/NEA CNRA, CSNI, MDEP, etc.,
   Korea’s role and transfer of experience and knowledge increased in the international community.
