Sustaining Nuclear Security at Decommissioning Sites workshop - 5 July 2022 to 8 July 2022

Please note that this event has passed.


As part of the UK’s Nuclear Security Culture Programme (NSCP), King’s College London will be hosting a workshop addressing ‘Nuclear Security through Decommissioning’.

This workshop, held over four days in London and Oxford*, will set the scene of nuclear decommissioning through a lens of International Atomic Energy Agency guidance, the fundamentals of nuclear security and an executive view of decommissioning in the UK civil nuclear sector.

The workshop will further develop awareness of the challenges and opportunities associated with delivering nuclear security through this phase of the nuclear life cycle. This will be done by addressing the distinguishing characteristics between nuclear operations and decommissioning and their impact on security. To illustrate some of the factors and challenges associated with maintaining security during a changing operational environment, this workshop will draw on UK case studies.

To provide further illustration and insight, this workshop involves comment from the principal owning body and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA). It will also include a site visit to a decommissioning site in the UK.

Attendance is not guaranteed and will be based on applications and relevance of experience. Please apply via the link above before 10 April 2022. Successful applicants will be informed by 30 April 2022 by the latest. Please direct any questions to: csss@kcl.ac.uk.

*Please note that whilst we intend for this event to take place in the UK, the COVID-19 pandemic and other factors may mean the event is hosted online.
