It might, if you're involved with or subject to nuclear medicine.

If you have a medical examination which involves a scan - eg a PET scan then access to refined nuclear material is absolutely essential both for the scanners and the trace dyes that are injected. . Most medical nuclear material currently comes from Europe - it could take years for the UK to develop facilities.

At first sight it seemed rather peculiar - like inviting terrorists but your explanation helps - I don't remember it being mentioned in all the pre-Brexit vote seminars LOL

When I had my thyroid removed due to cancer, I had radioactive iodine therapy. This was in the nuclear medicine department of Velindre hospital in Wales. Sounds scary, but it was quite an experience. In isolation for 3 nights.

The Brexit notice talks about Uranium products. The products that are used in nuclear medicine are quite different. I can see why they need to have rules about those products but the Brexit notice does not seem to apply to them specifically.

I do seem to remember a lot of discussions about Euratom at the time. I guess like a lot of things people didn't realise the implications.

The main radio isotopes used in radio pharmacology such as TC-99m, cannot be produced effectively be produced without a reactor. Hence Uranium etc
TC-99m is produced by the breakdown of molybdenum in a fission reactor.
Having undergone quite a lot of radio pharmacological treatment I did a bit of research into what they were giving me. Much of the info came from Parliamentary briefing papers.
