This document is an E-supplement to GAO-10-489. It presents the results of GAOs survey of the contracting parties to the Convention on Nuclear Safety. This survey was a key component of GAO's effort to gather information about the perceived effectiveness of the Convention in improving nuclear safety worldwide. The objectives of this survey were to determine which aspects of the Convention are working most effectively, and which aspects may need improvement. We obtained a 50 percent response rate from the recipients of our survey. In this e-supplement we present aggregate survey results regarding contracting parties' perspectives on (1) the usefulness of the Convention, (2) benefits of the Convention, (3) limitations of the Convention, (4) Convention activities, (5) rules of procedure and openness of meetings, (6) the International Atomic Energy Agency's role in the Convention, (7) Convention membership and measurement, and (8) Convention articles. A more detailed discussion of our scope and methodology is contained in our report "Nuclear Safety: Convention on Nuclear Safety Viewed by Most Member Countries as Strengthening Safety Worldwide," GAO-10-489 (Washington, D.C.: April 2010). We administered the survey from October 2009 to December 2009 in accordance with generally accepted government auditing standards.
