An important factor for public confidence in the nuclear regulator is the general public trust of the government and its representatives, which is clearly not the same in all countries. These workshop proceedings identify a number of common principles for the communication of nuclear regulatory decisions that can be recommended to all regulators. They have been cited in particular for their ability to help build, measure and/or improve overall public confidence in the nuclear regulator.

• Challenges in communications can be directly due to the structure and politics of government at different levels.

• A basic tenet is that journalists are different from the regulator and the industry, they may have a basic suspicion of technology and those who use it.
