Dawn, a Pakistani daily, has reported that Pakistan has joined a group of countries that are certified to produce Class-I nuclear safety equipment.

This allows it to locally manufacture spare parts for its nuclear power stations under embargo conditions and contribute towards a long-term nuclear energy programme.

The Pakistan Nuclear Regulatory Authority (PNRA) gave a licence to a unit of the Heavy Mechanical Complex (HMC) Tuesday to make specialised equipment related to core nuclear islands that are linked to controlling and maintaining activities in a reactor.
