Investigation into nuclear power stations


The Dutch Safety Board is launching an investigation into how the Netherlands works with neighbouring countries to prevent and contain incidents with cross-border consequences at nuclear power stations. Border-region residents have been expressing concerns for some time now in the wake of several such incidents. Factors that the Safety Board will be investigating include how the Netherlands and Belgium engage each other in decisions about and supervision over power stations, which information is shared between them and joint precautions the countries are taking in the event of an accident.
