Pursuant to the Atomic Energy Act, owners of nuclear facilities are subject to financially unlimited liability for personal injuries and property damage; irrespective of whether the injury or damage was caused by culpable action or not. The owner of the facility must furnish proof of the required financial security to meet the legal liability for damages. For nuclear power plants, the financial security amounts to euro 2,500 million per claim. The financial security can be provided by a liability insurance or an indemnity or warranty obligation by a third party.
