    Taiwan plans to set up independent nuclear safety commission

    May 5, 2022 - Taiwan News


      The Cabinet is preparing a new package of measures to reform its own departments, including the formation of an independent Nuclear Safety Commission to replace the Atomic Energy Council (AEC), reports said Wednesday (May 4).

      The latest phase of the reforms, which started in 2010, will include upgrades to departments, committees, and full ministries under the Executive Yuan, as the Cabinet is officially known, CNA reported.

      As the country's three functioning nuclear power plants are scheduled to be phased out by 2025, the AEC will be transformed into an independent Nuclear Safety Commission, as Taiwan will still have to deal with the impact of nuclear waste.

      Other changes include upgrading the Council of Agriculture (COA) to the Ministry of Agriculture and the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) to the Environment Ministry. The Ministry of the Interior will add a National Parks Administration under its wing, the report said.

      The latest reform package, which might also include changes to the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) and Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC), is likely to be the main topic of discussion at the Cabinet's regular weekly meeting Thursday morning (May 5), according to CNA.
