ONR is required by legislation to produce an Annual Report and Accounts which summarises our performance alongside other key developments across the organisation during 2016/17. The arrangements for and management of nuclear safety and security across UK nuclear sites, transport of radioactive materials and safeguarding nuclear material, are rightly measured against the highest standards. In a highly challenging year, ONR met the majority of its milestones and targets and delivered significant additional internal work relating to governance, corporate planning and leadership/management capability. Throughout 2016/17, ONR continued to deliver our regulatory core purpose, while maturing as an independent organisation under new leadership.
Section 108 of the Energy Act requires the Secretary of State (DWP and BEIS) to report annually to Parliament on the use of their powers exercised under Part 3 of the Act.
