UAE details nuclear plant liability law
While countries like Germany and Japan announced plans to phase out their nuclear power plants, the UAE is reinforcing its commitment to nuclear power through a new liability law.
The Federal Law by Decree No. 4 of 2012 concerning civil liability for nuclear damage has been effective since August this year, but on Monday, Hamad Al Kaabi, UAE’s permanent representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency and special representative for International Nuclear Cooperation, revealed details about the law.
“This law was drafted in accordance with the Vienna Convention on Civil Liability for Nuclear Damage as amended by the 1997 Protocol, which the UAE acceded to in August 2012,” said Al Kaabi.
