The Government has published initial pre-consultation draft versions of the Nuclear Safeguards Regulations to demonstrate how the regulations are developing and to provide an early opportunity for engagement with Parliament, industry and other stakeholders.
ONR has worked with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy in the development of the draft regulations, and will continue to do so as the regulations are developed further.
ONR will engage with stakeholders to discuss the operation of the future domestic safeguards regime in the coming months.
We understand that the Government’s formal public consultation on the regulations is currently planned for Spring 2018.
