E-002512/2012
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 117
Lambert van Nistelrooij (PPE)

 Subject: ‘Yellow card’ for Belgoprocess Mol
 Answer(s) 

In 2011, the EU Member States worked on the ‘national progress reports on the implementation of comprehensive risk and safety assessments of the EU nuclear power plants’, part of the nuclear stress test that will be finalised in 2012. At the beginning of 2012, the Belgoprocess company received a ‘yellow card’ from the Belgian Federal Agency for Nuclear Control (FANC). Safety should be the first priority, including at this company, which is located near the Dutch-Belgian border.

1. Is the Commission familiar with the report ‘Safety first at Belgoprocess’(1)?

2. Can the Commission indicate whether the shortcomings uncovered by the FANC’s unannounced inspection on 16 January have also already been mentioned in the ‘national progress report on the implementation of comprehensive risk and safety assessments of the EU nuclear power plants’?(2)

3. If the shortcomings uncovered by the FANC’s unannounced inspection on 16 January have not been incorporated in the Belgian ‘national progress report on the implementation of comprehensive risk and safety assessments of the EU nuclear power plants’, then what conclusions and consequences does the Commission link to that report regarding the progress of the stress test?
