A team from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) are visiting the UK to review ONR’s regulatory effectiveness. The Integrated Regulatory Review Service is the third mission to the UK and will focus on areas not looked at during previous missions including waste management; decommissioning; radioactive sources; radiation protection and lessons from Fukushima.
ONR welcomes this visit, which will review the findings from 2006 and 2009, as well as assess the nuclear safety themes that were not within the scope of the previous missions.
Consistent with previous missions, ONR will receive and publish the final report containing the mission’s findings and recommendations within 90 days.
You can read more about the mission on the ONR website.
