Currently 29 countries have a nuclear power stations, with a 440 active nuclear reactors. The IAEA wants the tests involve a decisive step towards the reinforcement and strengthening of nuclear safety. These tests appraise whether the nuclear power stations are sufficiently prepared to overcome natural disasters, serious problems and human origin issues.
