France’s ASN nuclear regulator said on Wednesday it had placed the Belleville nuclear power generation site under increased supervision due to a decline in safety levels noted since 2016.

An EDF spokeswoman said the company had proposed an plan to tackle the safety issues raised and the ASN had agreed to it.

“This action plan is aimed at reinforcing processes and would include training to avoid human errors. This plan will not impact the installations or production,” the spokeswoman said.
