The German members of the “Association Internationale du Droit Nucléaire (AIDN) / International Nuclear Law Association (INLA)”
in 1984 established a German Branch of AIDN/INLA the full name of which is “Deutsche Landesgruppe in der Association Internationale
du Droit Nucléaire (AIDN) / International Nuclear Law Association (INLA) zu Brüssel e. V.”, in short “Deutsche Landesgruppe
der AIDN/INLA”. The German Branch is a registered non-profit organisation with legal personality under German law.

AIDN/INLA was founded in 1972. It is a worldwide private organisation of lawyers who, in their respective professional activities,
deal with the legal issues connected with the use of nuclear energy and ionising radiation. AIDN/INLA is neither an association
promoting nuclear energy nor is it opposed to the use of nuclear energy. It is a learned society and a forum for the exchange of
information and for the discussion of nuclear law questions at international level.
The legal seat of AIDN/INLA is Brussels. Homepage:

According to its Statutes, the objectives of the German Branch are the promotion of scientific research in the field of national and
international nuclear energy and radiation protection law including related fields of law. Main instrument to achieve these objectives
is the organisation of conferences and seminars. Those events are meant to complement, at regional level, the worldwide conferences
“Nuclear Inter Jura”, which are held by the international AIDN/INLA.

Chairman of the German Branch of AIDN/INLA from its foundation in 1984 was Dr. Norbert Pelzer. Upon his resignation in 2010,
he was elected Honorary President. He was succeeded by Dr. Horst Schneider (2010-2012) and Dr. Christian Raetzke (since 2012).
The 15th Conference of the German Branch of INLA took place on 28 and 29 September 2017 in Bonn, Germany.
