The owners and main financiers of NKS are a number of central authorities and one ministry in the five Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden). Together with a number of experts appointed by the owners they form the NKS Board. All decisions on financing, programme activities, NKS policy etc. are made by the NKS Board. Further funding is provided by a number of supporting organisations who share an interest in nuclear safety.


NKS policy document can be downloaded here.

The rules of procedure for the NKS organisation can be downloaded here.


In addition to the funding provided directly to NKS it should be noted that in-kind contributions are provided by organisations participating in NKS activities, without which it would not be possible for NKS activities to take place.


NKS activities are coordinated through the NKS-R and NKS-B programmes by the NKS programme managers, while the NKS secretariat handles administrative duties such as economy, electronic media, publishing of reports etc.
