EUR Missions

The missions of the EUR Association are to come to common European positions on design requirements to be proposed by Vendors for future Nuclear Power Plants (NPP) and to promote harmonisation in requirements towards standardisation bodies across Europe and worldwide. 

The aims are to ensure their compliance with the safety and technical requirements established by national nuclear authorities, and to facilitate NPP vendors and designs to enter the European market by making the design requirements harmonised and more transparent.
