The Republic of Korea (ROK), South Korea, has officially offered assistance through the 1540 Committee, noting that it "within its capacity, will participate in regional and international level cooperation to achieve the effective implementation of this Resolution." In 2012, the ROK, Vietnam and the IAEA developed a Radiation Source Location Tracking (RADLOT) system in Vietnam, which is based on GPS technology. In 2012 it contributed US 1 million dollars to the IAEA Nuclear Security Fund. South Korea invited the IAEA's IPPAS mission in 2013 to assist its nuclear security regime. The ROK held another international symposium on nuclear security in February 2014 on the occasion of the opening of the International Nuclear Security Academy. At the eighth plenary meeting of the Global Initiative to Combat Nuclear Terrorism held in May 2013 in Mexico City, the ROK was elected as Coordinator of the Implementation Assessment Group for the years 2013-2015. 
On 25 March 2014, Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced that Canada and the Republic of Korea would lead a joint commitment on the implementation of United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1540.
