The Greek Atomic Energy Commission (EEAE) is the national regulatory authority, competent for the control, regulation and supervision in the fields of nuclear energy, nuclear technology, radiological and nuclear safety and radiation protection. EEAE is supervised by the Greek Minister of Education, Research and Religious Affairs.
The Greek Atomic Energy Commission was founded in 1954-1955 and was re-established, in its current form, in 1987. Its current operation framework is defined by the Law 4310/2014 (as amended by Law 4982/2022), which provides to EEAE complete administrative and financial independence, in the exercise of its regulatory duties.
EEAE is governed by a seven-member Board and is currently employing 69 persons, with a high level of education and scientific training.
EEAE organizational chart has been approved by the Government Council for Public Administration Reform; the related presidential decree is to be issued.
