The name of the society has been determined as “International Nuclear Chemistry Society” with the acronym of INCS.
The general aim of the INCS determined to be a bridge between individuals, institutions, and commercial companies and to establish close cooperation between them worldwide.
The scope of INCS is intended to be a large umbrella which covers all scientists dealing with chemical studies and applications of radioactive materials and nuclear radiation in all fields of science and technology with the understanding that Nuclear Chemistry is a branch which covers all kinds of chemical studies related to radioactive materials and nuclear radiation and to their applications in different fields of science and technology.
The main goals of the INCS are determined by the items given below:
The INCS Headquarters will be in the country of the elected President and in the city where his / her institution is located.
The INCS will be managed by the elected President with his/her close cooperation with elected Presidential Board members according to the Rules and Regulations described in this constitution until the subsequent General Assembly.
The candidate names of INCS President and of Presidential Board Members are recommended by the delegates to the Management Committee President of Assembly either in oral or written form before the voting. The same President and Presidential Board members may be elected again.
The Presidential Board consists of the INCS President and six members who will be elected by votes of delegates who actively joined the General Assembly.
The INCS offers memberships under three different categories to be Individual Membership, Institutional Membership, and Industrial membership.
Regular General Assemblies will be managed by a Management Committee which consists of President and two Reporters and will be elected by the votes of delegates at the beginning of each assembly.
Regular General Assemblies is opened by the President or a member of the Presidential Board nominated by the President.
Regular General Assemblies will be held during each International Nuclear Chemistry Congress which will be repeated at three years intervals and will include all registered participants of these congresses and of the registered members of INCS. All these delegates will have equal votes during these assemblies. A list of names and home countries of delegates present in the Assembly will be signed by each delegate before the start of the Assembly.
The agendas of the assemblies will be prepared by the Presidential Office of the INCS before the holding of each assembly.

Participants coming from Institutions registered to be an Institutional Member of INCS two months prior to each congress, will benefit from about 30 – 35 % reduction for the full registration fee of the next congress and these institutions will be preferential institutions for future activities of INCS and particularly their young staff members will preferentially benefit from summer schools, courses, grants, etc. which will be organized by INCS in the next three years.

The Regional Representatives of the INCS will be nominated by the General Assemblies being for Europe, Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Asia-Pacific, North America, South America, Central Africa, Middle East and North Africa.
The country and the name of the main Organizer of the next International Nuclear Chemistry Congress will be determined by the votes of delegates at the end of each assembly.
