Just one month after the 23 October 2001 unanimous
- minus one abstention - decision by the STOA (Scientific and Technological
Options Assessment) Panel, composed of Members of the European Parliament,
the report on the "Possible Toxic Effects from the Nuclear Reprocessing
Plants at Sellafield (UK) and Cap de La Hague (France)", prepared
by WISE-Paris was officially published on the European Parliament website
today, 22 November 2001.
The study, directed by Mycle Schneider, Director of WISE-Paris, is
co-authored by a team of nine experts from France, UK and United States.
It was commissioned in November 2000 by the STOA Unit of the Directorate-General
for Research of the European Parliament, after a request by the Commission
The final report, handed over by WISE-Paris at the end of August 2001,
is introduced by a letter of explanation of the decision to publish
it by the Chairman of the STOA Panel, and completed by three evaluation
reports of the study by European experts, whose opinion was formally
requested by the STOA Panel.
Presented by STOA as "a first contribution to the scientific debate",
the report, in English, includes 8 pages of the Executive Summary and
General Conclusions and 4 pages of Policy Options. Both abstracts, as
well as the three evaluation reports from experts, should soon be made
available by the European Parliament in the 11 official languages of
the European Union.
