The Euratom Treaty
The UK currently relies heavily on Euratom, Euratom’s officials, and the Euratom Treaty for, amongst other things, its regulatory regime, safety standards, and privity to various crucial international agreements on nuclear technology. These safeguards and standards are pre-requisites for international nuclear trade and research collaboration.
In addition to the above, the Euratom Treaty also establishes, inter alia, the free movement of nuclear sector specialists and associated investment capital across the Euratom Community (i.e. the Member States of the EU), and provides for funding of extensive research development programmes.
