Nuclear power plants have created many environmental problems for neighboring countries in the border regions. In this paper which is applied and descriptive-analytical study, we use the library method to answer the question. what are the remedies about international instruments for controlling and preventing the environmental problems of nuclear power plants in the border regions? In customary international law and some international documents regarding these power plants in the border areas, we are witnessing some procedures that have been used to control the pollution by these power plants. In the context of the establishment and operation of nuclear power plants in the frontiers, neither the conventions nor the rules of customary international law, we haven`t any general prohibitions. Most environmental rights, both internationally and in the domestic arena, there is soft and advisory nature and we have to remedy that the environmental rights will be out of the state of emergency and to be strict and binding. we are trying to explain the damages and problems of these power plants and to find solutions by reviewing international conventions and laws and applying these rules to the general principles of law and taking into account the rights of neighboring countries.
