Euratom Ties Key for Brexit

The Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Greg Clark, has released a written ministerial statement suggesting the UK Government will try to keep ties with EU nuclear body Euratom as intact as possible after Brexit.

The Government want to remain a leader in European nuclear research despite the break from the EU in 2019, a role that will enable the UK’s existing nuclear infrastructure to continue operating at current, or higher levels.

Mr Clark believes that a continuing role within Euratom will ensure the UK maintains its skilled nuclear workforce and can cover all decommissioning, operations and new construction projects.

A continued open trade route for nuclear products, goods and waste is also high on the Government’s agenda.

Greg Clark stated: “Whatever the outcome of the negotiations with the EU, it is vital that Government pursues all options for providing certainty for the civil nuclear industry that it will be able to continue its operations.”

“Including that the UK has a safeguards regime that meets international standards by the end of March 2019 and that necessary international agreements are in place.”

Chief Executive of the Nuclear Industry Association, Tom Greatrex, stated: “The Secretary of State’s statement on Euratom is a useful and welcome step in setting out the government’s approach in seeking to secure equivalent arrangements to those we benefit from as a member of Euratom.”
