UK nuclear industry shows commitment to addressing report recommendations
UK industry has responded well to lessons learnt from the Fukushima nuclear reactor meltdown, according to a report issued on Wednesday 31 October. The Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) conducted a review of progress made in response to recommendations made by the UK chief nuclear inspector Mike Weightman in a report for government last year. ONR deputy chief inspector Andy Hall said stakeholders had shown commitment to addressing issues and made "significant progress" in implementing new safety measures. However, ONR said more needed to be done and it would continue to monitor and assess the adequacy of progress made by the industry over the longer term, until it was satisfied that the "significant lessons" learnt from the Fukushima event had been "adequately discharged". It added that it would, if necessary, use its regulatory powers to ensure reasonably practicable improvements are implemented.
