UK-France Summit 2018: conclusions from the Civil Nuclear Energy Seminar

The discussions between the British and French ministers in charge of energy regarding nuclear energy cooperation emphasize that bilateral cooperation, supported by both regulators (ONR and ASN) and their respective TSOs (WOOD and IRSN), should rely upon the most stringent requirements in terms of nuclear safety, security and radiation protection. The conclusions highlight notably that the development of harmonized expertise practices in particular through the ETSON Network as well as addressing long term research challenges in nuclear safety, are key priorities for the future.
