ONR publishes Safeguards Annual Report for 2022

The Safeguards Annual Report for 2022 has been published by the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) today.

Since the UK's departure from The European Atomic Energy Community (EURATOM), and the end of the Brexit transition period, ONR has been the State Regulatory Authority for safeguards.

ONR's Safeguards Subdivision (part of the Civil Nuclear Security and Safeguards Division) has provided an annual report with an overview of the implementation of the Nuclear Safeguards (EU Exit) Regulations 2019.

This covers:

  • Inspection and assessment activities;
  • Facilitation of IAEA implementation of safeguards in the UK;
  • Assessment and submission of nuclear material accounting reports; and
  • Regulation of Qualifying Nuclear Facilities with Limited Operation

Paul Fyfe, Director of Regulation, Civil Nuclear Security and Safeguards, said: “We're pleased to publish the 2022 Safeguards Annual Report.

"This document is an important way for us to share the critical work our safeguards team does to enable the UK to meet its international safeguards obligations.”
