New EU nuclear safety group meets

29 October 2007

The newly formed European Union (EU) high level group on nuclear safety has held its first meeting.

Its experts are charged with advising on possible harmonisation of EU national rules and standards on nuclear safety, waste management and decommissioning.

EU energy commissioner Andris Piebalgs said: “It is up to each member state to decide whether to have nuclear power or not. But the question of nuclear safety and waste management concerns everybody. The high level group, with experts from all member states, will be essential in helping us achieve our common goals in this field”.
