Role of ISF website for the APSN

The Information Sharing Framework (ISF) is “a communication platform for experts to exchange nonproliferation and safeguards relevant information in a structured manner”. Use of the ISF is expected to facilitate information sharing among APSN professionals through establishing and demonstrating a mechanism for sustainable and systematic information sharing responding to their needs.

Information Sharing Scheme

As explained in the Transparency study of JAEA (4) on this website, the comprehensive requirements for ISF were defined. Based on the achievements, JAEA is moving to the “practical stage” of transparency implementation as the next step: develop the ISF following the defined requirements and initiate information sharing with other Track II (non-governmental, professions) experts. As shown in Fig. 1,

Once ISF demonstrates its value, this effort is expected to be expanded by inviting other APSN members as information providers in the future.
