US Calls For Global Nuclear Liability Plan

In a letter to the IAEA from US Ambassador to the IAEA Glyn Davies, a request was made that there be the adoption of a global nuclear liability regime.

In addition, to the extent practical, Member States and the Agency should utilize existing instruments and programs to undertake the actions.  In this regard, we strongly encourage Member States to join and effectively implement the Conventions noted in the Action Plan.  Likewise, we urge Member States to join the Convention on Supplementary Compensation for Nuclear Damage as a step towards a global nuclear liability regime.  These are steps that can, and should, be taken by any Member State with, or considering, a nuclear power program.
