Cross industry decommissioning – standards workshop
The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and regulators have been working together to understand the status of standards (guidance) available for the nuclear industry. The general conclusion, supported by work from the British Standards Institution (BSI), is that there is a lack of coordination and consistency across the sector in the production and use of standards and that nuclear industry coordination on standards is not sufficient to meet the Government’s Department for BusinessEnergy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) expectations.
The NDA has set up a cross sector initiative to ensure engagement, sharing and transfer of decommissioning learnings across the renewables, oil & gas, defence, space, process and waste UK sectors. Standards was identified as one of 16 themes of common interest between sectors from which relevant industries could benefit from sharing their learnings.
