Mr. Battle

The United Kingdom's report on its implementation of obligations under the Convention on Nuclear Safety will be submitted to the Convention's Secretariat by 29 September 1998, in accordance with the Rules of Procedure for the Convention. This report and those of all other Contracting Parties to the Convention will be reviewed at a meeting at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) starting in Vienna on 12 April 1999 and expected to last two to three weeks. At this early stage, costs of conducting the review are unclear.
