Nuclear safeguards regulation after Euratom exit

Earlier this week, the Government and the European Union agreed to extend Article 50 until 31 October 2019. During this period, the UK will remain a member of the EU and Euratom and all arrangements currently in place will continue until the time of the UK’s departure.

ONR is ready to deliver a UK State System of Accountancy for and Control of Nuclear Material (UK SSAC) that enables the UK to meet its international safeguards obligations when required, and will now build on the UK SSAC to deliver a domestic safeguards regime that is equivalent in effectiveness and coverage to that currently provided by Euratom.
