Influence of EU law on the international framework of legal regulation of the liability relations in nunuclear law
The paper deals with the civil law relationships for the nuclear damage caused by the nuclear incident that are, due to their specific character and potential cross-border consequences, regulated by means of international law. The emphasis in the paper is put on questions of the potential application and limits of the European Union (“EU”) legislation, represented by the Regulation Brussels I that is applicable to legal nuclear liability relations (eventually, their procedural aspects by application of this right by legitimate subjects) and mutual relationships between the Regulation and international nuclear liability conventions as well as questions of definition of concrete rules setting the jurisdiction of courts in matters of nuclear damages where the Regulation Brussels I may be applicable. An attention is given also to the question of potential application of the Regulation Rome II to legal relationships of nuclear damages and to the legal relationships that are closely connected with the nuclear damage compensation, though these are not directly regulated by international nuclear liability conventions.
