Accepted by Legislative house on July 2, 2019

Approved by the Senate on August 23, 2019

Chapter 1. General provisions

Article 1. Purpose of this Law

The purpose of this Law is regulation of the relations in the field of use of atomic energy in the peace purposes (further - use of atomic energy).

Article 2. Legislation on use of atomic energy

The legislation on use of atomic energy consists of this Law and other acts of the legislation.

If the international treaty of the Republic of Uzbekistan establishes other rules, than those which are stipulated by the legislation the Republic of Uzbekistan about use of atomic energy then are applied rules of the international treaty.

Article 3. Basic concepts

In this Law the following basic concepts are applied:

atomic energy - the energy containing in atomic kernels and which is marked out in case of nuclear reactions and radioactive decay;

nuclear power - the power industry which is engaged in production of electrical and heat energy by transformation of atomic energy;

complete "vital" cycle of subject to use of atomic energy - research, placement, design, designing, production, construction (including installation, commissioning, commissioning), operation, reconstruction, repair, survey of technical devices, buildings and constructions, conclusion from operation (closing), transportation (transportation), storage, conversion and burial of the corresponding subjects to use of atomic energy;

spent nuclear fuel - the nuclear material which is finally removed from active zone of the nuclear reactor and on technical characteristics not held for use in nuclear installation;

radiation sources - the complexes which are not relating to nuclear installations, installations, devices, the equipment and products which contain radioactive materials or ionizing radiation is generated;

radioactive materials - the substances which are not relating to nuclear materials emitting ionizing radiation;

radioactive waste - materials and substances in any aggregate state, not the held for use, containing radionuclides with the activity level exceeding maximum permissible values;

storage Items - the stationary objects and constructions which are not relating to nuclear installations and intended for storage of nuclear materials and radioactive materials, storage or burial of radioactive waste;

nuclear fuel - the nuclear material intended for receipt of heat energy and (or) flows of radiation in nuclear installation due to implementation of controlled nuclear reaction of division;

nuclear materials - the materials containing or capable to reproduce the sharing (split) nuclear substances;

the heat-generating assembly of the nuclear reactor - the product containing nuclear materials and intended for receipt of heat energy in the nuclear reactor due to implementation of controlled nuclear reaction;

The list of subjects to use of atomic energy which can be in state-owned property or property of legal entities affirms the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan.

Owners of subjects to use of atomic energy ensure their safety and use according to their appointment.

Transactions of legal entities of the Republic of Uzbekistan about transfer of property on nuclear materials, and also spent nuclear fuel, to foreign state or the legal entity of foreign state, consist in coordination with the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan.
