This book is a practical guide to the international, EC and UK law applying to the peaceful uses of nuclear energy and radioactive substances.

The first edition was produced, by Sweet & Maxwell, in 1997, and given the renaissance of interest in nuclear power in the UK this new, updated and much expanded edition is timely.

It will cover the law relating to:-

  • the permitting and operation of nuclear power stations,
  • the decommissioning and clean-up of former nuclear facilities,
  • the management of radioactive waste and spent fuel,
  • liability and insurance, and the security and transport of radioactive materials.
Readers will find a clear framework explaining the development and application of nuclear law, and how domestic law is based on and influenced by international and European requirements.
