European Commission urges Bulgaria to comply with EU radiation protection rules

The European Commission said that it sent a letter of formal notice to Bulgaria for not complying with all the requirements of the Euratom Drinking Water Directive related to the monitoring of radioactive substances.

The directive sets out parametric values, frequencies and methods for monitoring radioactive substances in drinking water and provides for the establishment of monitoring programmes to check that drinking water meets those requirements, the Commission said in a statement on Thursday.

The Commission also said that it sent a reasoned opinion to Bulgaria for its continued failure to connect its national business register to the Business Registers Interconnection System (BRIS). BRIS allows for transparency of information on companies, thus facilitating operations across the internal market and reducing unnecessary burden on companies and business registers.

The EU institution also decided to send an additional letter of formal notice to Bulgaria over its failure to provide and operate data link services for all operators of aircraft flying within airspace under their responsibility, and which are capable of data link communications.
