Question for written answer E-004704-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Svetoslav Hristov Malinov (PPE)

 Subject:  Nuclear safety in the EU
 Answer in writing 

On 11 March 2011, the north eastern coast of Japan underwent a level 9 earthquake on the Richter scale, followed by a tsunami. The combination of these two natural disasters caused the death of nearly 16 000 people in the area. As a result of the catastrophe, the power supply and cooling of the three reactors in the Fukushima nuclear power plant were cut off, which caused the second most serious nuclear accident after Chernobyl.

Seven years after the Fukushima accident there are still very serious public concerns about the nuclear safety in the EU.

Given that nuclear safety is among the main priorities of the EU and at the same time remains the responsibility of Member States, I would like to ask the Commission:

Have any new requirements with regard to the construction of nuclear power plants in the EU been adopted following the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident?
