Edward Davey responds to the Chief Nuclear Inspector's Annual Report 2013.

The independent nuclear regulator, the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) has today published the Chief Nuclear Inspector’s inaugural annual report, which provides information on the performance of the UK nuclear industry.

The report is published as part of the ONR’s commitment to openness and transparency on an annual basis.

The report is based on the areas that the ONR regulates; safety, security, transport and emergency preparedness. It also includes information relating to nuclear safeguards where ONR has a duty to ensure that the UK’s international responsibilities are met.

Copies of the report can be obtained from the ONR website
