The Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) said the safety measures it had recommended to enhance safety at the Kudankulam nuclear plant would be implemented through the next two years.

An AERB committee had recommended various factors be considered before loading fuel into the Kudankulam plant. However, AERB has faced criticism for agreeing to load the fuel without heeding the recommendations.
