Brussels, 20 June 2002

Peer review status report. "I" item note from General Secretariat of the Council to COREPER. Brussels, 5 June 2002 (document 9601/02 LIMITE ATO 68 ELARG 197; No. prev. doc.: 5034/02 ATO 1 ELARG 1). Full text

In July 2001 the Permanent Representatives Committee approved (doc. 10729/01) the procedure for the monitoring of candidate countries' commitments with respect to the recommendations contained in the report on Nuclear Safety in the Context of Enlargement (doc. 9181/01).

In order to implement this mandate the Presidency submitted to the Atomic Questions Group (AQG) a working programme (5034/02) for its ad hoc formation, the Working Party on Nuclear Safety (WPNS). Following consideration of this working programme by the AQG on 9 January, the WPNS held a series of meetings from 1 February to 13 May. The peer review status report resulting from this work is here attached.

The Permanent Representatives Committee is invited to take note of the attached peer review status report and the evaluation and conclusions therein, with a view to take them into consideration in the accession negotiations.

Further to the tasks requested under its existing mandate, including monitoring, the AQG/WPNS stands ready to assist in any further follow-up activity. It will inform the Enlargement Group accordingly.
