Specifically the Bundestag voted to amend the Atomic Energy Legislation, making it clear that there could be no further extension. “The law clearly says that the factories will close on April 15, 2023,” Environment Minister Steffi Lemke said.

As far as security matters are concerned, the new Law states that “security is constantly ensured at a very high level by overall state supervision”. However, the thorough periodic safety inspection, which is carried out every ten years, will not be carried out “due to the extremely short period of continued operation”, the document states.
