Senior Research Fellow Denise Cheong and Research Associate Nivedita S were invited to present to the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency’s (NEA) Working Party on Nuclear Liability and Transport (WPNLT) during its annual meeting held on 17 and 18 December 2020. This virtual meeting brought together representatives from member countries of the OECD NEA, intergovernmental organisations and industry as well as independent experts. The CIL Nuclear Law and Policy team presented on law of the sea and maritime law issues related to the interpretation and application of international nuclear liability instruments to nuclear transport. The WPNLT is one of three working parties that fall under the purview of the NEA’s Nuclear Law Committee. Its main objectives are to examine issues relating to the interpretation and application of international nuclear liability instruments to nuclear transport and to find practical solutions through information exchange and the sharing of relevant experience.
