About this blog

This blog has been set up to share thoughts and experiences on the management of radioactive waste and decommissioning of some of the earliest nuclear sites in the UK.

The contributors have a wide range of perspectives reflecting their different and varied roles in the industry. The posts often contain the personal views of our bloggers.

Please note, that posts written by our guest bloggers may not reflect the views of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), its businesses or the UK government.

We invite you to share your views with us.

We encourage open, lively debate but the decision to publish comments received via this platform remains at the discretion of NDA Group businesses.

We endeavour to publish comments as soon as possible, but please note that this will take longer outside of core working hours.
