Progress towards a global nuclear liability regime

Nuclear Energy Agency

During its April 2014 meeting, the Steering Committee for Nuclear Energy held a policy debate on “Progress towards a Global Nuclear Liability Regime”. The Steering Committee heard presentations from several experts on nuclear liability issues. To prepare the delegates to the Steering Committee for the policy debate, the NEA Secretariat prepared a background note on the status of the nuclear liability regimes, as well as on current issues and challenges in implementing the regimes. This article is based on the background note and is intended to provide basic information on the relevant international conventions and an overview of recent developments to enhance the understanding of the legal framework in which policymakers and practitioners are engaging to respond to the call for broader adherence to the international liability instruments.
