Convention on Supplementary Compensation for Nuclear Damage

The Convention on Supplementary Compensation (CSC) aims at establishing a minimum national compensation amount and at further increasing the amount of compensation through public funds to be made available by the Contracting Parties should the national amount be insufficient to compensate the damage caused by a nuclear incident. The Convention is open not only to States that are party to either the Vienna Convention on Civil Liability for Nuclear Damage or the Paris Convention on Third Party Liability in the Field of Nuclear Energy (including any amendments to either), but also to other States provided that their national legislation is consistent with uniform rules on civil liability laid down in the Annex to the Convention.

An online calculator has been developed, which applies the formula in Article IV of the CSC and assists users in running scenarios of actual and possible Contracting Parties to the CSC to determine the amounts to be contributed to the international fund in such cases.
