New Report Published on Duty of Care for Nuclear Security

22nd February 2018

The Stimson Center has recently published a report that explores how nuclear industry actors can demonstrate Duty of Care to prevent security incidents and how this could affect nuclear liability determinations.

Titled Lifting the Lid on Nuclear Liability: The Perspectives from the Judicial Branch, the report was written by Lovely Umayam, Kathryn Rauhut and Jacqueline Kempfer. It grew out of a roundtable hosted by the Stimson Center in partnership with WINS and UK Barristers’ Chambers, 39 Essex Chambers.

The roundtable was part of a long-standing series that Stimson hosts on legal accountability and liability for nuclear security. As the report explains:

Participants from civil society, regulatory bodies, and the nuclear industry attended the event to discuss the implications of a cyber-physical security incident on a hypothetical nuclear facility and the ways in which operators may face legal inquiries about the reasonableness of their security decisions and practices in light of the incident.
