French nuclear regulatory agency DSIN agreed to resumption of rail shipments of spent fuel from NPPs operated by Electricite de France (EDF).
The shipments were suspended May 6 by national rail company SNCF after it was revealed that convoys with surface contamination exceeding regulatory limits had been rolling on French tracks for over a decade without the knowledge of SNCF or national authorities.
