EU agrees tougher nuclear safety rules after Fukushima disaster

Source(s):  Thomson Reuters

Following the earthquake and tsunami that struck Fukushima in March 2011, causing the world's worst nuclear accident in 25 years, a series of stress tests were carried out in Europe to examine the resilience of nuclear power stations. The European Union drafted a new framework setting out a clear nuclear safety objective to further reduce safety risks based on the results of these tests.

"We need to put all our efforts into making sure that the highest safety standards are followed in every single nuclear power plant across the EU," Energy Commissioner Guenther Oettinger said in a statement.
