YGN Presents: Introduction to Regulation

15th October 2014 - 16th October 2014


Returning following the success of the 2013 event: This two-day seminar will give you an excellent opportunity to learn more about how the UK’s nuclear industry is regulated.

The seminar will provide delegates with a clear understanding of how the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) undertakes this important role.

The seminar will cover the following topics:

  • Background: why and how ONR regulates the UK’s nuclear industry.
  • Regulation throughout the UK’s nuclear industry: including Civil Reactors, Defence, Sellafield, Transport, Decommissioning, Safeguards, and Security programmes.
  • International regulation.
  • ONR’s response following Fukushima.
  • Regulating nuclear-new-build, and the Generic Design Assessment process.

As well as the excellent range of technical presentations, there will be two interactive sessions:

  • Tour and demonstration of the ONR’s incident suite, as used to manage the UK’s response following Fukushima.
  • An opportunity to study a simulated emergency response exercise, where groups will get the chance to understand ONR’s response to a postulated event.
