Reactor Safety Commission (RSK)
The RSK advises the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) in safety-related matters and thus matters concerning the physical protection of nuclear installations and radioactive waste management.*
Since 1958, the RSK has been performing this advisory work for the federal ministry responsible for the safety of nuclear installations and radiation protection (since 2013 the BMUB, formerly the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (1986-2013), the Federal Ministry of the Interior (1972-1986), the Federal Ministry for Education and Science (1969-1972), the Federal Ministry of Scientific Research (1962-1969), the Federal Ministry of Nuclear Energy and Water (1958-1962)).
