UK’s nuclear industry will suffer, in withdrawing from the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom)

Power Technology 16th Nov 2018 The draft Brexit agreement, which was released on 14 November, includes a
provision that the UK will withdraw from the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom), despite concerns that it could damage the UK nuclear energy industry, in particular civil nuclear power production.

Within the document titled ‘Draft Agreement on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom
of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union and the
European Atomic Energy Community’, plans are set for the UK to leave the
nuclear regulator when it leaves the European Union (EU).

The agreement states: “The [UK] shall have sole responsibility for ensuring that all
ores, source materials and special fissile materials covered by the Euratom
Treaty and present on the territory of the [UK] at the end of the
transition period are handled in accordance with relevant and application
international treaties and conventions, including but not limited to
international treaties and conventions on nuclear safety.”
