Nuclear Safety Governance and Regulatory Interfaces Support
Unrivalled knowledge and experience of nuclear site licensing, environmental permitting and safety governance processes, ensuring you meet stringent stakeholder and regulatory expectations.
Overseeing the safety and security of nuclear sites and radioactive materials is a complex challenge for a sector with stringent regulatory requirements.
It’s a challenge heightened by the fact that there’s a skills shortage in the industry at a time when many of today’s nuclear facilities are reaching the end of their generating lifespan and the government is scaling-up its nuclear new-build programme.
We’ve an in-depth understanding of the UK nuclear regulatory process and have authored regulatory guidance documents on the preparation of nuclear organisational baselines, as well as advising regulators on the way that they oversee nuclear safety-related activities. Crucially, this encompasses strategies and training to help you effectively implement intelligent customer arrangements, and to engage with nuclear regulators in an effective and productive manner.
Features and benefits of our service include:
- Interpretation of regulatory requirements and expectations.
- Support to regulatory interface meetings.
- Responses to regulatory challenges and clarifications.
- Development of regulatory interface strategies.
- Review of regulatory guidance documentation.
We offer a unique perspective. Particularly around the expectations of the environment agencies and the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR). Our acute insights support regulatory interface activities from an early stage of nuclear new build projects through to operations and eventual decommissioning, helping you meet stakeholder expectations and the stringent regulations required for nuclear facility licensing and operation.
Developing and maintaining a robust nuclear safety culture and effective competency management system is a key aspect of our service offering, enabling these principles to be embedded across organisations throughout the nuclear lifecycle.
