Court rules against Belgium

3 August 2002

The Belgian government has been ordered by the European Court of Justice to bring its health and safety laws in line with the 1990 Euratom directive on the operational protection of outside workers exposed to the risk of ionising radiation during their activities in controlled areas.

The court found that Belgium's monitoring procedures were inadequate generally and that its regulations did not allow foreign companies to effectively update health records of their employees when they worked in or near Belgian nuclear installations.
