ONR statement on future safeguards regime

14 September, 2017

In a Written Ministerial Statement published today from the Secretary of State for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, Greg Clark, it was confirmed that Government intends to establish a domestic safeguards regime seeking to deliver to existing Euratom standards, going beyond what is required to achieve compliance with international obligations.

We’re still assessing what this will mean practically for ONR, and this will no doubt be influenced by the Government’s ongoing negotiations with Euratom and the IAEA.

ONR will continue to work closely with the Government on policy and legislation regarding the detail of the proposed future safeguards regime.
