Abstract

These Regulations amend the Radioactive Contaminated Land (Scotland) Regulations 2007 so as to apply the modifications those Regulations make to Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 regarding 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. They also exclude provisions relating to the water environment or pollution of the water environment in Part IIA from having effect in relation to situations arising from a nuclear occurrence and implement obligations 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.
