June infringements package: key decisions. Nuclear waste: Commission calls on Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Ireland, Latvia and Malta to correctly transpose EU rules
Today, 7 June 2018, the Commission has decided to send letters of formal notice to Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Ireland, Latvia and Malta for failing to correctly transpose certain requirements of the Spent Fuel and Radioactive Waste Directive (Council Directive 2011/70/Euratom). The Directive establishes a Community framework for ensuring the responsible and safe management of spent fuel and radioactive waste to avoid imposing undue burdens on future generations. If the 6 Member States do not act within the next two months, the Commission may send a reasoned opinion on this matter.
