The legal status of the European Union’s (EU) Euratom Supply Agency has been overhauled by the EU Council of Ministers, which has decided to give the agency a permanent official headquarters, in Luxembourg City.
A new statute – which replaces a founding regulation agreed in 1958 – formally incorporates into the agency the 12 new member states that have joined the EU since 2004.
It also introduces modern financial management controls and systems into the agency, noted a council communiqué.
“The Euratom Supply Agency's mission is to guarantee a regular and equitable supply of nuclear materials to EU users,” it added.
