Major Accidents

Following the accident at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan in 2011, NuLeAF responded to the government review of implications for nuclear installations in the UK (see consultation responses) and received a presentation from Dr Andy Hall of the Office for Nuclear Regulation on the review produced by the then Chief Nuclear Inspector, Dr Weightman.

NuLeAF continues to monitor and report to the Steering Group on the impacts of the ‘Weightman’ recommendations.  It also monitors and reports on changes to the Paris-Brussels Convention on nuclear liabilities management including whether the level of operator liability is sufficient and whether waste management facilities should be included.
