Belgium provides the IAEA with a modest, but valuable Support Programme. The tasks that have been performed in the framework of this Support Programme deal with the development and/or testing of measurement technology, mainly non-destructive methods, execution of system studies, the training of IAEA inspectors and performing analytical measurements. SCK●CEN is coordinator of the Belgian Support Programme and performs a significant part of the technical tasks. Other Belgian companies that provide for a valuable contribution to the Support Programme are Belgonucléaire, Electrabel with the power plants at Doel and Tihange, FBFC and Belgoprocess. Other, general support to the IAEA is provided by SCK●CEN and other nuclear companies by participating in technical committees and advisory groups. SCK●CEN is also founding member of ESARDA, the European SAfeguards Research and Development Association.
