The Nuclear Reaction Data Centres Network (NRDC) is a world-wide cooperation of nuclear data centres, under the auspices of the International Atomic Energy Agency, established to coordinate the collection, compilation, and dissemination of nuclear data on international scale.
Dissemination of nuclear data and associated documentation to users is the primary goal of the network. In order to accomplish this goal, the following specific tasks are carried out:
There are currently 13 data centres active in the Network: 4 "Core Centers" and 9 specialized data centers.
The core centres provide coordinated, worldwide customer services covering the entire range of nuclear data services. Data compiled and collected at these centres is exchanged on a regular basis and, therefore, the databases residing at these centers are, essentially, identical in content (with a small time delay).
|Centre Name||Service Area|
|US National Nuclear Data Center
Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, NY, USA

|OECD NEA Data Bank (NEADB)
|email@example.com||NEA Data Bank member countries|
|IAEA Nuclear Data Section (NDS)

|Russian Nuclear Data Center (CJD), Institute of Physics and Power Engineering (IPPE), Obninsk, Russiaemail@example.com||Countries of the former Soviet Union|
The specialized centres provide an essential complement to the core centres by assuming responsibility for the collection and dissemination of data of a specialised type or application. These centres do not normally provide the entire range of services offered by the Core Centres.
