The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Euratom: UK is just not ready to set up its own nuclear safeguarding arrangements

Utility Week 25th July 2017,The UK requires more time than the two years withdrawal period outlined in
the Article 50 process to set up its own nuclear safeguarding arrangements,
a leading Liberal Democrat peer has warned.

Lord Wallace said in a debate last week in the House of Lords that it would take five years to train the
nuclear inspectors who will be required to staff up the UK’s replacement
of Euratom, the pan-European safeguarding agency that the British
government has pledged to withdraw from.

The peer, a former deputy first minister of Scotland, said that the nuclear industry required some form of
transitional arrangement. And he said in the long term, the government
needed to stop treating as a red line the continued jurisdiction of the
European Court of Justice in English courts.  http://utilityweek.co.uk/news/UK-needs-five-years-to-replace-Euratom/1308222
