The 4th Aarhus Convention & Nuclear European Roundtable on “The Aarhus Convention implementation in the context of nuclear safety” will be held on 4-5 December 2012 in the premises of European economic & Social Committee. This event is organised by the ANCCLI, the European Commission (DG ENER), with support of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and the French Institute for Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety (IRSN).
The European Round Table is aiming at the identification of key issues for the implementation of the Aarhus Convention in the context of nuclear safety in Europe. The implementation of the Aarhus Convention in decisions regarding nuclear safety will be reviewed with the stakeholders in relevant contexts in Europe and notably:
- Along the lifecycle of nuclear installation involving various questions of nuclear safety at different stages such as planning, siting, operating, implementing major changes of the installation, extension of lifetime, closing, decommissioning and post-closure watching;
- In the context of the Stress Tests of Nuclear Safety implemented at national and European levels in the aftermath of the Fukushima accident.
