Nuclear safeguards are measures to verify that countries comply with their international obligations not to use nuclear materials from their civil nuclear programmes to manufacture nuclear weapons.
Following the end of the post EU exit transition period, and the UK exiting Euratom on 31 December 2020, ONR is now the UK’s nuclear safeguards regulator, responsible for the domestic safeguards regime and operating the UK’s State System of Accountancy for and Control of Nuclear Materials (SSAC).
Over the last three years, ONR has worked with UK government, nuclear industry and other stakeholders to build the necessary capability and capacity to ensure that UK continues to meet its international safeguards obligations and play a lead role on the world stage to ensure that nuclear materials continue to be used for peaceful purposes.
We welcome you to a short presentation and a discussion on this important subject on the 27th January 2021 at 10:30am.
