Extracts from the press conference by Günther Oettinger on the adoption of a draft proposal for an amended EU directive on nuclear safety

28 views

On 13 June 2013, Günther Oettinger, Member of the EC in charge of Energy, gave a press conference on the adoption of a draft proposal for an amended EU directive on nuclear safety. The safety of nuclear energy production is vital for all Europeans. Rigorous safety provisions help ensure that accidents like Fukushima will not happen in Europe. They also guarantee the most efficient response should a nuclear emergency nevertheless occur. With this proposal, which amends the nuclear safety directive from 2009, the European Commission sets out EU-wide safety objectives to significantly reduce the risks and protect people and the environment. By introducing a system of regular European peer reviews, increasing transparency on nuclear safety matters and strengthening the powers of national regulators, the directive aims at continuous improvement of nuclear safety across the EU.
