The Prosecutor's Office of Paris opened an investigation into suspected documentation irregularities at one of Areva’s foundries. An international group of inspectors visited the company’s foundry in Le Creusot, France, after local authorities discovered Areva supplied steel components to several nuclear power plants in France that did not satisfy quality standards due to a high concentration of carbon. Inspectors also found documentation irregularities.
