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.
