The Government has today published its response to the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) final report on the Integrated Regulatory Review Service (IRRS) mission to the UK.
The IRRS mission, which took place between 14 – 25 October 2019, saw a team of 18 independent experts from across the globe scrutinising the regulation of nuclear and radiological safety. It consisted of a peer review of the UK’s regulatory infrastructure for safety against IAEA safety standards.
The mission was requested by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and hosted by the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR). It was the culmination of months of preparation and collaboration between 15 regulatory bodies, five Government Departments and their equivalents in the Devolved Administrations.
The Government has welcomed the final report in its response, which you can read in full, along with the IAEA’s mission report, on the BEIS website.
