Summary

We're seeking views on proposals to amend the regulatory framework that applies to nuclear sites in the final stages of decommissioning and clean-up.

This consultation closes at

Consultation description

Working with the regulators and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), BEIS has identified an opportunity to improve current arrangements that apply to the regulation of the final stages of nuclear site decommissioning and clean-up. We published a discussion paper on the principle of these proposals in November 2016 and are now consulting on the detailed proposals, in particular the arrangements for exiting the nuclear third party liability regime and for ending the nuclear site licence.

We welcome views from all interested parties, particularly:

  • local communities in the vicinity of existing nuclear sites
  • local authorities
  • nuclear operators and liability owners
  • members of the nuclear industry (including the radioactive waste management supply chain)

We will also be holding stakeholder workshops to discuss these proposals.
