Nuclear Security Vulnerability Assessment

Our Vulnerability Assessment service is here to support the entire UK nuclear industry. It provides quantitative assessment of security measures - aligned for the first time to Nuclear Safety quantitative assessment, in place for so many years. By putting such a service in place, we've removed any subjectivity or opinion from regulatory compliance.

Our assessments are designed perfectly to fit UK Nuclear Security compliance and the new National Objectives Requirements Model Standards (NORMS). This covers the protective security of civil licenced nuclear sites, other nuclear premises and nuclear materials in transit. As the regulatory system is updated, NORMS will be the new standard for the UK nuclear industry. By carrying out a numerical method of nuclear security assessment, we can help our customers improve compliance and national resilience, in line with new regulations.
