- Nuclear stress tests – Commission Interim Report

These EU wide tests will be in addition to existing the framework already applied at national level. Their aim is to assess whether the safety margins used in the licensing of nuclear power plants were sufficient to cover also extreme unexpected events.

If this would be true, the possibility of a plane hitting a nuclear power plant would not be excluded along with other types of terrorist attacks.
