Consultation description

The government is seeking views on proposals to revise the Nuclear Installations (Prescribed Sites) Regulations 1983. Proposed changes to the Nuclear Installations (Insurance Certificate) Regulations 1965 and the Nuclear Installations (Excepted Matter) Regulations 1978 are also covered by the paper.

These regulations define the categories of sites to which a lower level of liability applies; specify the information nuclear operators must include in the insurance certificates they must provide for transport of nuclear matter overseas; and define situations where the liability regime does not apply to nuclear matter being transported.

These Regulations support the implementation of the 2004 Protocols to the Paris Conventions on nuclear third party liability and the Brussels Supplementary Convention. Further information.
