Statement of nuclear incidents at nuclear installations

A statement of nuclear incidents at nuclear installations in Britain during the first quarter of 2003 is published today by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

For the period 1 January to 31 March 2003 there were no incidents at any of the civil licensed nuclear installations that met the reporting criteria.

Notes to Editors

1. The arrangements for reporting incidents were announced to Parliament by the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Energy on 30 April 1987 (Hansard col. 203-204). A minor modification to arrangements for reporting on nuclear incidents was announced in HSE press notice E108:93 of 30 June 1993.

2. Normally each incident mentioned in HSE's Quarterly Incident Statements will already have been made public by the licensee or site operator either through a press statement or by inclusion in the newsletter for the site concerned.
