Reporting on nuclear safety

STUK's national and international reports on the status and regulatory oversight of Finland's nuclear safety have been compiled on this page.

Reporting of regulatory oversight of nuclear safety in Finland

Once a year, STUK submits a report to the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment of Finland on the regulatory oversight activities concerning the nuclear energy sector. The report is a summary of regulatory oversight of safety in the use of nuclear energy performed by STUK and of the related results in the previous year.

Older reports can be found in the open repository for the publications (

STUK also publishes tertial safety reports.
Information on emissions from nuclear power plants published annually can be found on the page Radiation safety of nuclear facilities.

Reporting in accordance with international conventions

Finland has ratified the International Convention of Nuclear Safety, the Joint Convention on the Safety of Spent Fuel Management and the Safety of Radioactive Waste Management and the Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Material and its Amendment. This means that Finland has undertaken, in accordance with theconventions, to report on the measures taken or planned in order to implement the contractual obligations before each review meeting.

Reporting in accordance with EU directives

In addition to international conventions, Finland is bound by EU directives establishing a Community framework for the nuclear safety of nuclear installations (2009/71/Euratom) and the Community framework for the responsible and safe management of spent fuel and radioactive waste (2011/70/Euratom). These Directives obligate countries to report periodically on the subject matter of the Directive and to participate in peer reviews and implement the development recommendations made.

According to the Nuclear Safety Directive, EU Member States must arrange nuclear safety peer reviews at least every six years. The purpose of this procedure is to share experiences and identify opportunities to further develop nuclear safety in the EU. 
The first peer review on the ageing management at nuclear facilities was carried out in 2017. The second peer review will focus on fire protection and will take place in 2023.
