Nuclear risk insurance in France
The "Pool Français d'Assurance des Risques Atomiques", founded in 1957 as an “Insurers Association”, turned into an “Economic Interest Group” in 1969 and changed its name into Assuratome in 1995.
Members of Assuratome, insurance and reinsurance companies, operating on the French market, have pooled their insurance capacities dedicated to the coverage of nuclear risks.
Assuratomes’ own capacities are currently enriched with additional capacities provided by foreign Nuclear Pools operating in countries which have a civil nuclear industry. Assuratome also offers its reinsurance capacities to these foreign pools for the coverage of nuclear risks worldwide.
