Egypt is set to establish a nuclear power industry regulatory agency in early 2018 according to reports out of the Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy. According to an Al Mal News report the nuclear power regulator would be responsible for supervising the construction of Al Dabaa nuclear power plant, until it is handed over to the nuclear power plants authority.
Laws required establishing the nuclear plant have already been finalized by the ministry. Egyptian Parliament approved three laws governing nuclear regulation and usage late November an Ahram Online report said.
The regulation laws, if approved by the president, will establish two authorities to regulate the usage of nuclear power, according to Al Mal.
