To ask Her Majesty's Government what measures, if any, they are introducing prior to the UK's withdrawal from Euratom to ensure that each of the basic standards applied to the nuclear industries are checked and amended as necessary to ensure that each remains as valid and effective as those required by Euratom.
Nuclear safety in the UK is currently regulated by the UK’s independent regulator the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) and this will not change. We remain absolutely committed to maintaining high standards of radiation protection for workers, the public and the environment.
As of February 2018, the UK has transposed the majority of Euratom’s 2013 Basic Safety Standards Directive (2013/59/Euratom) into UK legislation, which sets updated standards for radiation protection. We are committed to completing the transposition of the remaining parts as soon as possible to ensure that the UK continues to be recognised internationally as a leader in radiological safety.
