3 February 2020

The webinar will give you a chance to hear from Adriènne Kelbie and Anthony Hart, Deputy Chief Nuclear Inspector, talking you through our aspirations for the next five years, and also give us a chance for us to hear your views on the strategy.

We’ve already undertaken extensive engagement on our future direction and priorities with our stakeholders to shape the draft 2025 Strategy including those we regulate, the nuclear industry, our NGO community of local and national campaign groups, other regulators, government, and, of course, our staff and Board. The comments were wide-ranging, and included learning from and working with others, welcoming innovation and new ways of working, agility and influence, all reflected in this draft strategy.
