The Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) is a voluntary group of 44 supplier countries who contribute to the nonproliferation of nuclear weapons by restricting nuclear trade for peaceful purposes . Since its creation in 1975, NSG has designed and implemented two guidelines for nuclear exports and nuclear related exports, including dual-use items.
The NSG Guidelines are implemented by each participating government in accordance with its national laws and practices . Decisions on export applications are taken at the national level in accordance with national export licensing requirements.
INFCIRC/539/Rev.5 (Dec. 2012), an IAEA information circular provides detailed background on the NSG and is updated periodically.
