Abstract

These Regulations amend the Radioactive Contaminated Land (Modification of Enactments) (Wales) Regulations 2006 so as to apply the modifications those Regulations make to Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 to all radioactivity including circumstances where civil liability for damage to the land is regulated, for the purposes of the Paris Convention on third party liability in the field of nuclear energy, by the Nuclear Installations Act 1965 or foreign law. Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 sets out a regime for the identification and remediation of contaminated land. They also amend the Contaminated Land (Wales) Regulations 2006 to provide for a new ground of appeal against a remediation notice and implement obligations arising under Articles 48 and 53 of Council Directive 1996/29/Euratom laying down basic safety standards for the protection of the health of workers and the general public against the dangers arising from ionizing radiation.
