UK NIA seeks assurances on Brexit

3 April 2017

The UK Nuclear Industry Association (NIA) on 31 March called for arrangements to be put in place to avoid disruption to the nuclear energy sector following the initiation of the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union (Brexit). NIA CEO Tom Greatrex wants Theresa May’s Conservative government to put together a working group to look at the impact Brexit on the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom). “The NIA has called for transitional arrangements to be put into place to avoid undue disruption to industry and has urged the Government to convene a working group to analyse the full impact of leaving Euratom,” he said. “The nuclear industry is global, so the ease of movement of nuclear goods, people and services is important to enable new build, decommissioning, R&D and other programmes of work to continue without interruption.” The NIA represents more than 260 companies including nuclear power station operators, new build developers and vendors, those engaged in decommissioning, waste management, all aspects of the nuclear fuel cycle, supply chain and consultancy companies.
