The Third International Workshop on the Indemnification of Damage in the Event of a Nuclear Accident was held in Bratislava, Slovak Republic in October 2017. It was organised in co-operation with the Nuclear Regulatory Authority of the Slovak Republic. The workshop offered a unique opportunity 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. Discussions focused on the legal aspects of compensating victims who suffered nuclear damage due to a nuclear incident that occurred at a land-based nuclear power plant and caused transboundary damage.
The workshop was attended by more than 170 participants from 33 countries (of residence), including non-NEA member countries such as China, Croatia, India, Nigeria, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, Ukraine and the United Arab Emirates. Participants came from public and private sectors representing governments, regulatory authorities, academia, the judiciary, operators, suppliers, law firms, the European Commission and the International Atomic Energy Agency.
