Many developed and developing nations have embraced the technology and developed new energy policies paying special attention to nuclear power as an alternative source of energy. Nuclear power production is a very delicate advancement and requires so much attention due to the hazards associated with nuclear radiations. This is to say that nuclear energy generation is a part of the energy sector that should be undertaken by organizations that are fully responsible. The regulation of nuclear energy generation should be done in a very transparent and efficient way. For this to be achieved, the regulatory bodies should be fully independent of the other powers governing a particular state.

It should ensure that the world’s defense and security is not compromised as well as the protection of the environment (ElBaradei, 2003).
