EDF Energy Generation (NG)’s number one priority is safety and we strive for a Zero Harm Record. Our policy is to be compliant with the UK law and to conform to UK Government policy. In order to achieve our goals we have a suite of governance to manage conventional and radioactive waste across the fleet.

EDF Energy Generation (NG) has implemented an Environmental Management System (EMS) across the business which is certified to the ISO14001 standard.

Management systems

The responsibility for radioactive waste management belongs with each EDF Energy Generation (NG) site, as required by the Nuclear Site Licence Conditions. The safe management of radioactive waste on nuclear licensed sites in the UK is regulated by the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) under the Nuclear Installations Act 1965 (as amended). Radioactive waste disposal is regulated by the Environment Agency (EA) in England and Wales and by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) in Scotland.
