IAEA Information Channel for a 'live' view of incidents (Nuclear & Radiological) reported under the International Nuclear Event Rating Scale (INES). Typical coverage includes significant events in nuclear power plants, research reactors, nuclear fuel cycle facilities and occurrences involving radiation sources or the transport of radioactive material. [December 2023 - note that this channel only now shows 12 months of data. Look elsewhere in our links section of a way to view all events].
