European Nuclear Safety Regulator Group (ENSREG)

The European Nuclear Safety Regulators Group is an independent authoritative expert body composed of senior officials from national regulatory or nuclear safety authorities from all 27 Member States in the EU.

The fundamental principle of ENSREG's work is that there should be continuous improvement in nuclear safety, a vital safeguard against complacency. ENSREG also aims to develop a common understanding among European nuclear safety regulators concerning the safety of nuclear installations and spent fuel and radioactive waste management. ENSREG's work also covers the financing of the decommissioning of nuclear installations in the EU.

ENSREG has established three working groups to implement its work programme.  ENSREG submits an activity report to the European Commission at least every two years for onward transmission to the European Parliament and the Council. Documents from ENSREG are available on the following website:

All ENSREG documents are also archived and directly accessible through the library on the Public Space of the European High-Level Group on Nuclear Safety and Waste Management
