ONR's mission is to provide efficient and effective regulation of the nuclear industry, holding it to account on behalf of the public. As the nuclear regulator, ONR must take enforcement action when licensees are found to be failing to meet the safety and security standards required by law. To do this ONR has been provided with a range of enforcement powers which range from providing advice to instigating court proceedings.
