Nuclear regulator publishes annual progress report

7 July 2016

The Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) has published its annual judgement on the regulatory attention applied to nuclear licensed sites. The regulator judges that nuclear dutyholders have achieved high standards of safety and security, and continue to protect the workforce and the public from harm.

This judgement is made as part of the Chief Nuclear Inspector’s annual statement, published within ONR’s Annual Report and Accounts which has been presented to Parliament today. The statement provides an overview of ONR’s regulatory activity, performance against its priorities and judgement on the regulatory attention necessary for each licensed site, dependent on the level of hazard and risk posed by the facility.
