Third International Workshop on the Indemnification of Damage in the Event of a Nuclear Accident

    Registration closed

    The Third International Workshop on the Indemnification of Damage in the Event of a Nuclear Accident aims to explore the practical application of international nuclear liability instruments and the potential consequences with regard to non-convention states in the case of a nuclear incident.

    Organisers

    The workshop is co-organised by the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency and the Nuclear Regulatory Authority of the Slovak Republic.

    Background

    Two previous International Workshops on the Indemnification of Damage in the Event of a Nuclear Accident were held in Paris in November 2001 and in Bratislava in 2005 respectively. Following those successful experiences, the NEA Nuclear Law Committee in its November 2016 meeting suggested that another exercise be organised to assess the implementation of currently applicable international nuclear liability conventions in conjunction, among others, with non-convention states regimes, assuming all modernised international instruments have come into force.

    Programme

    The workshop will assess the implementation of the following instruments:

    • the Paris Convention on Third Party Liability in the Field of Nuclear Energy and the Brussels Supplementary Convention, both as amended by the 2004 Protocols;
    • the Vienna Convention on Civil Liability for Nuclear Damage and the 1997 Protocol to amend the Vienna Convention;
    • the Joint Protocol relating to the application of the Vienna Convention and the Paris Convention;
    • the Convention on Supplementary Compensation for Nuclear Damage.

    The workshop moderators will be Mr Martin Pospíšil, Director of the Division of Legislation and Legal Affairs at the Nuclear Regulatory Authority of the Slovak Republic and Mr Christian Raetzke, independent lawyer and consultant at CONLAR.
