Information released

I can confirm we do not hold the information in your request.

ONR regulates nuclear safety and conventional health and safety at licensed nuclear sites in the UK. These include the existing fleet of operating reactors, fuel cycle facilities, waste management and decommissioning sites and licensed defence sites. ONR also regulates conventional health and safety, including radiation safety, on Crown ‘authorised defence sites’ where the Defence Nuclear Safety Regulator (DNSR) oversees nuclear safety.

We regulate the design and construction of new nuclear facilities, nuclear security at civil nuclear sites and the transport of nuclear and radioactive materials. We work with the international inspectorates to ensure that safeguards obligations for the UK are met and to ensure we continue to be a positive influence on the international safeguards regime.

ONR therefore does not hold any information on contractual arrangements at AWE. The contract for integrated soft services is a commercial arrangement between AWE and their supplier. We would therefore suggest that you contact AWE with your request. Contact details for AWE can be found at
