The European Commission initiated a procedure of violation of EU law regarding the introduction of EU regulations on radiation protection into Polish legislation.

Poland now has two months to answer the objections raised by the EC, otherwise, the Commission may decide to move to the next stage of the infringement procedure.

The EC called on Poland to fully implement the directive on basic safety standards in national law. The EU Member States were required to do so by February 6, 2018, but - as the Commission has stated - Poland has not transposed the legislation in its entirety.

The Basic Safety Standards Directive modernizes and consolidates EU radiation protection legislation. It also sets basic safety standards to protect employees, patients and the general public against the dangers of exposure to ionizing radiation.

It also includes provisions on emergency preparedness and response, which have been tightened after the 2011 Fukushima nuclear power plant accident.
