An analysis of the problems that have arisen in connection with civilian nuclear power, the Non-Proliferation Treaty, and International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspection. Two proposals are submitted: (1) IAEA certification of regional inspection systems as an alternative to IAEA inspection. Regional associations of the nonnuclear states would perform the actual inspections in accordance with procedures standardized by IAEA. (2) U.S. support of foreign construction of enrichment facilities, provided the facilities are organized on a multinational basis. The regional associations would serve as channels for receiving technical assistance on enrichment problems.
