We regulate activities at Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) Aldermaston and AWE Burghfield. These are licensed sites providing and maintaining the warheads for the UK's nuclear deterrent on behalf of the Ministry of Defence (MOD). They are MOD owned, but are occupied and operated by the licensee, AWE plc.
