Brexit impact—Euratom and the UK Nuclear Sector

As of 31 January 2020 (exit day), the UK is no longer an EU Member State, but it had entered an implementation period during which it continues to be treated by the EU as a Member State for many purposes. 11 pm (GMT) on 31 December 2020 marked the end of the Brexit transition/implementation period entered into following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. At this point in time (referred to in UK law as ‘IP completion day’), key transitional arrangements came to an end and significant changes begin to take effect across the UK’s legal regime. Any changes relevant to this content will be set out below.

For information on how leaving the EU will affect the Great Britain’s (GB) membership of Euratom and the nuclear sector as a whole, see Practice Note: Energy and Brexit-Euratom and the UK Nuclear Sector, which details the background to the Euratom Treaty and the evolving position on the UK’s exit from the Euratom Community as a corollary of Brexit. It includes discussion of Brexit and nuclear research and investment, Brexit and nuclear health and safety standards, Brexit and supply of nuclear fuel, Brexit and nuclear safeguards, Brexit and the nuclear common market, and Brexit
