In late September 2011, the giants of the nuclear power industry announced a new voluntary code of conduct that will guide their future nuclear reactor exports.

The 'Nuclear Power Plant Exporters' Principles of Conduct' took three years to negotiate, facilitated by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a panel of experts and the now–adherents to the code — Areva, Russia's Atomstroyexport, Canada's Candu Energy, GE, Hitachi, Korea Electric Power Co, Mitsubishi, Toshiba and Westinghouse. The Principles have not made a serious media splash, but are significant for their specificity, comprehensiveness, and proactive approach to the risks posed by the industry.
