Office for Nuclear Regulation

We are pursuing four prosecutions for offences relating to three issues under the Health & Safety at Work etc. Act 1974. Two of the three cases relate to conventional, industrial-type incidents. The third relates to an incident that caused radiological contamination to a site employee. You can find more information on our enforcement page, where we publish updates on each case.

Enabling regulation takes a constructive approach with industry dutyholders to drive delivery against clear and prioritised outcomes. This complements us holding industry to account where necessary, and these prosecutions demonstrate that we will take robust regulatory action to ensure compliance with the law and in the public interest.
