Press Statement on Euratom and supply of medical isotopes following Brexit from the British Nuclear Medicine Society, supported by the Royal College of Radiologists and Royal College of Physicians
On Wednesday 12 July there was a parliamentary debate on the implications for the UK on withdrawing from the Euratom Treaty. Since 1957 the Euratom framework has enshrined the regulation and safeguards for the transportation and use of radioactive materials and governs UK international nuclear cooperation agreements with European and third party countries, including Canada, Japan and the USA. Withdrawing from Euratom will affect the arrangements for the supply and use of radioactive isotopes to industry, power generation, academia and medicine.
