Sellafield Ltd prosecution update

26 February, 2019

As part of the on-going prosecution of Sellafield Ltd, Sellafield Ltd has formally confirmed to ONR and to Carlisle Crown Court that they intend to plead guilty to an offence under Section 2 (1) of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act (1974), in a case brought by the Office for Nuclear Regulation. A sentencing hearing has therefore been scheduled for 2 April 2019.

This matter remains subject to active court proceedings so ONR cannot comment any further at this stage for legal reasons.
