On behalf of the UK Government and taxpayers our objectives are to progress decommissioning and clean-up, deliver high hazard reduction and encourage high standards in health, safety, security, and environmental performance.

Decommissioning covers facilities across Sellafield where decommissioning is currently being carried out. It excludes the decommissioning of all future facilities, current operational facilities and facilities which are subject to retrieval operations.


Functions include those areas which support the operational and clean-up work at Sellafield. They include support services such as environment, health and safety (EHS&Q), human resources, finance and communications.
