As our Annual Report and Accounts for 2017 to 2018 are published, David Peattie, Chief Executive of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, looks back over a year of progress and reflects on the learning that will transform the NDA into a stronger organisation, in the best possible shape to face challenges of the future.

Site Assessment Group leader David Edwards explains how his team of multi-disciplinary specialists has been carrying out in-depth scrutiny of on-the-ground decommissioning work at some of the earliest nuclear sites as well as the latest nuclear archive project. The group aims to build a comprehensive understanding of progress to support NDA teams that are based off site.
