Abstract

Objective: To establish a world-wide liability regime to supplement and enhance the measures provided in the Vienna Convention on Civil Liability for Nuclear Damage among others, with a view to increasing the amount of compensation for nuclear damage.

Summary of provisions: Article I defines nuclear damage which includes the costs of measures of reinstatement of the environment unless such impairment is insignificant. Compensation in respect of nuclear damage per nuclear incident is organised by article III. The funds provided are to apply to nuclear damage which is suffered inter alia in the territory of a Contracting Party or in or above maritime areas beyond the territorial sea of a Contracting Party (art. V). Article XIII to XV rule matters related to jurisdiction and applicable law. (Source: IUCN ELC, 08.2005)
