Basic Safety Standards - Council Directive 2013/59/Euratom
The new EU BSS Directive entered into force on 6 February 2014 and requires that Member States bring into force the laws, regulations and administrative provisions necessary to comply with the Directive within four years. Considering that the transposition and implementation of this comprehensive piece of legislation (comprising of 99 definitions, 109 articles and 19 annexes) will constitute a major challenge for the respective national legislators and regulators in EU Member States, Candidate States, and EFTA States, the European Commission (EC) plans to organise actions and activities to monitor the transposition of the BSS Directive into Member States’ national legislation and to support its implementation.
As a result, the countries implementing the BSS Directive will undertake a variety of approaches and strategies to integrate it into their national legislation. It is essential that plans and experience between the countries and organisations are shared, to help achieve a common understanding of the BSS Directive requirements and to ensure as smooth integration as possible.
The EC DG ENER, with the support of RISKAUDIT, brought together many interested parties to this workshop to share and discuss the challenges of making the new BSS Directive a reality in each Member State.
RISKAUDIT organised two workshops, a General workshop and Emergency Response and Preparedness workshop, from 1-2 December 2015 and 3 December 2015 respectively.
