Convention on Nuclear Safety: National Report for the Sixth Review Meeting in April 2014

This report shows how the Netherlands meets the obligations of each of the articles of the Convention on Nuclear Safety (CNS).

On 20 September 1994, the Netherlands signed the Convention on Nuclear Safety (CNS). It was subsequently formally ratified on 15 October 1996 and entered into force on 13 January 1997.

The CNS obliges each contracting party to apply widely recognised principles and tools in order to maintain a high level of safety at its nuclear power plants. It also requires each contracting party to report on the national implementation of these principles to meetings of the parties to the Convention.

This report is the sixth in its series. It shows how the Netherlands meets the obligations of each of the articles of the Convention.

After publication of the reports, the contracting parties to the CNS started the review proces. Written answers to questions and comments to the reports could be given until the end of February 2014.

The information provided by the report applies to the situation of 1 July 2013 unless explicitly specified otherwise. At the review meeting in April 2014, the Netherlands will present the then available information.
