The Nuclear Safety Authority (ASN) is an independent administrative authority created by the Act on transparency and security in the nuclear field (TSN) of 13 June 2006. It actually started functioning on 13 November 2006, the date on which the five members of the Commission that runs the authority took up their duties.
After slightly more than one year of active existence, the ASN Commission is therefore honoured to be able to introduce the report on the state of nuclear safety and radiation protection in France in 2007.
On behalf of the state, the role of ASN is to regulate nuclear safety and radiation protection in France, in order to protect workers, patients, the public and the environment from the risks linked to nuclear activities, and to contribute to informing the citizens.
