Title Informational autonomy in Nuclear Communication: analysis of current legislation Summary Public opinion in Spain has historically been opposed to nuclear energy. The atomic sector points to a lack of information and awareness among the population as the main causes of this rejection. Bridges between public opinion and the atomic industry must be built with transparent information by those authorities with a responsibility to inform (be they the government, the regulatory body, or a nuclear power plant) so that citizens are protected in case of unforeseen events, and to ensure they understand the advantages and disadvantages of this energy source. In this sense, the legislation on Nuclear Communication considers transparency to be the fundamental basis for this interaction with society. In this article we review the international, European and national regulations to have a clear idea of the projection and influence that this regulation has on the communication management of these industries. Keywords Transparency; nuclear legislation; nuclear communication; nuclear energy; nuclear power plant.
