Context of the roundtable

Post-Fukushima Context and EP&R in the European Union
During the Post-Fukushima European Nuclear Safety Stress-Tests, the Civil Society (CS) has drawn the attention of European Union (EU) and National Authorities on the urgent necessity to update the existing provisions of Emergency Preparedness and Response (EP&R) as component of indepth nuclear safety. A particular attention is to be given to the effectiveness of practical implementation and the adequateness of EP&R provisions at EU and national levels. In December 2013, the EC has achieved a first appraisal of the current state of Nuclear EP&R provisions in Europe (“Review of current off-site nuclear emergency preparedness and response arrangements in EU member states and neighbouring countries“ – ENCO Study1). The Nuclear Transparency Watch EP&R Working Group has carried out (2013-2014) a review of existing EP&R provisions at EU and national levels and published a report giving the CS point of view2 and a position paper summarizing the main findings and recommendations for improvement of the EP&R provisions3. On October 2014, HERCA (Heads of the European Radiological protection Competent Authorities) and WENRA (Western European Nuclear Regulators Association) agreed on an Integrated/Common “HERCA-WENRA Approach for better cross-border coordination of protective actions during the early phase of a nuclear accident4.” The European research project PREPARE5 produced also some feedback and perspective related to civil society initiatives and access to expertise in an accidental and post-accidental context.

The Aarhus Convention & Nuclear (ACN) process
ANCCLI and the General Directorate of ENERgy (DG-ENER, European Commission) initiated the ACN (“Aarhus Convention & Nuclear“) process in 2008, in order to assess the concrete implementation of the Aarhus Convention regarding nuclear activities. The process ended with an international meeting held in March 2013, in Luxemburg6. After five years of work performed in the frame of European Roundtables and national Roundtables, the ACN stakeholders, institutional actors (safety authorities, operators, experts), elected representatives and civil society organisations have highlighted the effective contribution of civil society to nuclear safety, once the (legal, financial, access to expertise, etc.) conditions are met.
This EP&R Roundtable is part of a new step of the ACN process (ACN2) in order to answer to the important issue of the civil society deployment at the European level, which is more and more an integrative level where important decisions are taken regarding nuclear safety and R&D (Research and Development).

Objectives of the ACN Roundtable
In the perspective of the revised Basic Safety Standards (BSS) Directive (2013/59/Euratom) involving the updating of the EP&R provisions in each member state by 6th February 2018, this European ACN Roundtable, gathering all the concerned stakeholders, gives the opportunity to present the key results of the different initiatives mentioned above and to discuss them in the perspective of the Aarhus Convention with a specific focus on the transboundary issues, in order to draw recommendations for improving the current situation.

being addressed to the Presidency of the Council of the European Union;

to the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker;

to the President of the European Council, Donald Tusk;

to the President of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz.

All EU Member States that have the intention to develop new nuclear power plants, research reactors or other
nuclear facilities such as nuclear waste facilities, or want to extend the life time of old nuclear reactors or prepare
them for long term operation should be obliged by the Council of the European Union and the European
Commission to:

1. Strive in the coming five years to come to a system of unlimited nuclear liability, including insurance /
financial reserves coverage for the impacts of nuclear accidents that will suffice to at least cover the needed cashflow
in the first two years after the accident. The life of all European citizens should be treated equally and valued
on the same high level.

2. Guarantee that the Espoo Convention and the Aarhus Convention are respected, which are mandatory
for all Member States and the European Institutions. The Council of the European Union and the European
Commission should guarantee also to abide by these conventions in all nuclear matters.

3. Guarantee that all nuclear projects should have an emergency preparedness and response system in
place that can prevent harm to citizens even after the most severe accident. This includes pre-distribution of stable
iodine to all families within 50 km, sufficient medical provisions, information leaflets on emergency preparedness
and provision of sufficient safe evacuation shelters.

4. Offer state guarantees concerning the implementation of sufficient security measures to guarantee that
no terrorist attack ever will be possible on nuclear facilities, and nuclear facilities will be safe and secure from
attack during situations of war.

5. Eliminate all state subsidies and other support measures for nuclear facilities to ensure equal treatment
for all operators on the energy market and prevent crowding-out of the growth of clean and renewable energy

6. Implement proper education, training and clear instructions of the population in the entire European
Union how people should react in the case of a nuclear accident.

7. Take measures in education and information provision to guarantee that the population is aware of the
effects of radiation on health and environment.

8. Require that each decision concerning new nuclear installations or life-time extension of nuclear
installations is accompanied by proper Environmental Impact Assessment with public participation, also
transboundary, assessing viable alternatives, including alternatives based on an increase of energy efficiency and
renewable energy sources, and a full justification of environmental and other impacts in comparison with those

We furthermore ask the European Commission to cease privileging nuclear power within the EU „Energy Union“
in reference to the EURATOM Treaty. Hence, we hereby call upon the Council of the European Union and the
European Commission to start negotiations with the Member States to revise the EURATOM Treaty in itself in
order to guarantee equal access and treatment of all sorts of energy within the EU.

7. Stopp der Wettbewerbsverzerrung durch versteckte Fördermaßnahmen für die Atomindustrie (z.B. geringeHaftungssummen bei Schadensverursachung,
unzureichender Versicherungsschutz, unvollständigeKostenrechnung des Produktionszyklus von Atomstrom etc.)
Übernahme sämtlicher Kosten derAtomstromproduktion hat durch die Atomindustrie zu erfolgen.

8. Volle und rechtzeitige Information über die Sicherheit von Atomkraftwerken und über Gesundheitsparameter imUmkreis der Anlagen – leicht zugänglich für alle Bürger.

9. Förderung von Erneuerbarer Energie und von Energie-Efzienzprojekten durch die Regierung. Ja zu einembeschleunigten Ausstieg aus der Kernenergie.

10. JA zum Klimaziel 2030 durch Erneuerbare. Nein zur Lüge, Atomkraft sei CO2 neutral und eine Lösung für dieKlimarettung.


ST. POELTEN 25.04.2014


1. No to new nuclear power plants.
2. No lifetime extension of plants beyond originally designed lifetime.
3. Nuclear safety authorities need the input from the critical public which can be represented by a member of civil society.
4. Preparing sites for fnal waste repositories need to respect principles of democracy and public participation.
5. Existing plants have to be continuously upgraded to meet up-to-date safety standards; in any case they must be shut down as soon as possible.
6. Maximum transparency in accordance with the Aarhus Convention, as well as applicable European law.
7. Abolishing of subsidies for nuclear energy to end any distortion of competition (as reduced liability of nuclear damage, low level of insurance etc.).
All costs arising from the operation of NPPs must be borne by the nuclear industry.
8. Full and timely information about the safety of NPPs and of health parameters in the vicinity of NPPs – easily accessible for all citizens.
9. Promotion of renewable energy and energy efciency projects by our governments and accelerated phase-out of nuclear power.
10. Climate targets for 2030 including renewables without allowing the nuclear industry to present nuclear energy as a green, climate-friendly energy.
