German-Czech Commission (DTK)
The basis for the bilateral discussions in the DTK is the Agreement Between the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Government of the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic on the Regulation Matters of Common Interest Regarding Nuclear Safety and Radiation Protection (external link, German), concluded in 1990. Following the dissolution of Czechoslovakia in 1992, the agreement continues to apply with regard to both Czechia and Slovakia (external link, German). The German-Czech Commission was established under the auspices of this agreement.
