Licence holders pre Sellafield and BNFL

Information released

ONR does not publish a list of former licensees. 

The two sites for which Sellafield Ltd currently holds licences were previously licensed to BNFL and the UK Atomic Energy Authority. 

These sites have only been licensed since 1971 when BNFL was formed.  Prior to that there was no requirement for the UKAEA to hold nuclear site licences.
