Nuclear Decommissioning Authority
The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) is a non-departmental public body created through the Energy Act 2004. They are a strategic authority that owns 19 sites and the associated civil nuclear liabilities and assets of the public sector, previously under the control of United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) and British Nuclear Fuels Ltd (BNFL).
Their mission is to deliver safe, sustainable and publicly acceptable solutions to the challenge of nuclear clean-up and waste management. This means never compromising on safety, or security, taking full account of the social and environmental responsibilities, always seeking value for money for the tax payer, and actively engaging with stakeholders.
"Our purpose is to deliver the decommissioning and clean-up of the UK's civil nuclear legacy in a safe and cost-effective manner. Our prime focus is on maximising progress on the highest hazards and risks while ensuring that safe, secure and environmentally responsible site operations are maintained across our estate, delivering value for money for the taxpayer."
