Established 1957, Rome (Italy), by Treaty Establishing the European Atomic Energy Community (Treaty of Rome) which set up European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom). Operative since 1 June 1960. Council of the European Union Decision of 12 Feb 2008, establishing new Statutes for ESA.


Ensure a regular and equitable supply of ores and nuclear fuel for Community users by means of a common supply policy based on the principle of equal access to sources of supply. Together with the European Commission: pursue the objective of long term security of supply through reasonable diversification of supply sources and avoidance of excessive dependency on any one supply source; in the context of fair trade, ensure that the viability of the nuclear fuel cycle industry is maintained.

Under the Euratom Treaty, the Agency has the right of option to acquire ores, source materials and special fissile materials produced in the Community and exclusive right to conclude contracts for supply of such materials whether from inside or outside the Community. As provided for in Article 52 of the Euratom Treaty, to be valid under Community law, supply contracts must be submitted to the Supply Agency for conclusion - including purchases, sales, exchanges, loan/exchanges.

The Agency checks that contracts are compatible with provisions and objectives of the Euratom Treaty and with the Community's supply policy and that they comply with international obligations of the European Community. If the Agency refuses a contract then this decision may be referred to the European Commission, whose decision may be challenged before Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU). Transfers of small quantities (as provided for under Article 74 of the Euratom treaty) and contracts relating to processing, conversion or shaping of ores, source materials or special fissile materials, including enrichment (as provided for under Article 75) are to be notified to the Agency. The Commission authorisation is required by virtue of Articles 59 and 62 for exports of nuclear materials produced in the Community and for supply contracts of more than 10 years duration by virtue of Article 60. The Advisory Committee is consulted on all major policy issues of relevance to the Agency's area of work and on its annual report and budgetary matters. It acts as a link between the Agency and producer and user industries and as a forum for discussion and for formulation of advice on nuclear supply and trade matters.
