The civil use of nuclear energy and radioactive materials in medicine and research is regulated by the EURATOM treaty in the European Union since 1957. The work achieved by the European Commission is of fundamental importance for the wealth of the European citizens, although the development of responsibility in the broad field of other energy sectors within the EU seemed to displace the nuclear energy. Whilst decisions concerning the use of nuclear energy practically accord with those of the single Member States it is obvious that topics such as nuclear safety, disposal of radioactive waste, radiation protection and safety management of EURSTOM should be dealt with on European level. These Brochures should highlight the width of measures which are taken by the EU in the field nuclear research and show the high standards of safety that result for the European citizens.
