Licences may be needed to import nuclear materials under Brexit no deal. And Government confirms a new domestic nuclear safeguards regime will come into force. A paper – one of 24 released by Whitehall outlining preparations and scenarios that could play out if no Brexit deal can be agreed before Britain leaves the EU in March – on civil nuclear regulation states that an import licence may be required to bring nuclear material, equipment and technology from EU countries to Britain. Licences are not required under current arrangements, but the document warns that after March 29 2019 “importers may need to obtain an import licence for imports of relevant nuclear materials from the EU”. It adds: “The UK will engage with importers on any new arrangements that will apply from this date and provide further guidance on these.”
