The Office for Nuclear Regulation is the UK’s independent nuclear regulator, with the legal authority to regulate nuclear safety, security and conventional health and safety at 36 licensed nuclear sites in Great Britain (GB). This includes the existing fleet of operating reactors, fuel cycle facilities, waste management and decommissioning sites, as well as licensed defence sites, together with the regulation of the design and construction of new nuclear facilities.
ONR also regulates the transport of nuclear and radioactive materials by road, rail and inland waterways, and as of January 2021 operates the UK’s State System of Accounting for and Control of Nuclear Materials (SSAC) which includes domestic safeguards regulation.
Our work is critical to the protection of society at large so it is important that we do it with rigour, diligence and with an appropriate level of assurance.
