International conventions are agreements made under international law, between states or international organisations, referring to a specific field. Through these conventions, states commit voluntarily to take the domestic legislative, regulatory and administrative measures as well as any other measures necessary to uphold their obligations under each convention’s particular terms.

The Spanish Constitution says that the Spanish State holds exclusive power over international relations. The Constitution also establishes how the State’s consent must be given and how a validly made treaty has to be incorporated into Spanish domestic legislation.

Spain is a party to a number of conventions in the field of technological and physical nuclear safety and radiation protection and complies with its commitments in those areas. The Spanish Nuclear Safety Council plays a role in Spain’s compliance with these commitments in the areas within the Council’s responsibility.
