On 12 May 2011, Günther Oettinger, Member of the EC in charge of Energy, met the European Nuclear Safety Regulators Group in Brussels to discuss the 'stress tests' for nuclear power plants. The aim is to set additional safety criteria drawn up in the light of the nuclear accident in Fukushima.
The European Nuclear Safety Regulators Group (ENSREG) is an independent, authoritative expert body created in 2007 following a decision of the European Commission. It is composed of senior officials from the national nuclear safety, radioactive waste safety or radiation protection regulatory authorities from all 27 Member States in the European Union and representatives of the European Commission.
