On 30 July, the European Commission (“Commission”) issued a public consultation on the question of nuclear liability. The consultation aims to gather views from stakeholders in relation to the need for common rules at EU level on insurance and compensation for nuclear accidents that occur within the EU. The Commission is expected to publish a legislative proposal on nuclear liability and insurance by the end of the year.
