Gunnar Hökmark, MEP

Enhancing Nuclear Safety

Led by a Swedish MEP, the European Parliament has voted through a proposal to toughen up safety and security in nuclear power plants in member states.

The draft law, guided by Swdish centre-right MEP Gunnar Hökmark, calls for member states to have independent national regulators armed with the power to close down unsafe nuclear power plants.

The directive will set common EU safety guidelines and enhance transparency.
