New NEA Study On National Legislation
In The Nuclear Field
The OECD Nuclear Energy Agency
has just published a new analytical study concerning nuclear legislation
in NEA countries entitled "Regulatory and Institutional Framework for
The use of nuclear energy carries with
it the obligation, for both producer and consumer countries, to provide
specific legislation in response to the past, present and future requirements
of nuclear energy. There are many nuclear laws, and as can be seen from
this study of the 25 NEA countries, they vary greatly. This analytical
study gives a global, quick and systematic picture of the nuclear legislation
of each country.
This publication is intended for all
those with an interest in nuclear law, and for the first time offers them
an excellent collection of information covering the institutional framework
for nuclear energy in each country, together with the main sectors of
nuclear energy, including mining regimes, trade in nuclear materials and
equipment, radioactive waste management, radiation protection, etc.
The publication is presented in the
form of a loose leaf binder, facilitating annual updates and the introduction
of sections concerning the legislation in any new Member countries.
