PARIS, April 18 (Reuters) - French nuclear security watchdog ASN said on Monday that it had been informed of the falsification of control reports by a French engineering company which produces parts used by industries that supply the nuclear sector among others.

ASN did not namee companies involved, but said in a statement that equipment destined for a research reactor under construction may have been affected.
