SAGTA’s collaborative April 2018 Workshop with the Environment Agency: Guiding Principles for Land Contamination: Lessons and Approaches for a Second Generation and Beyond

SAGTA, in collaboration with the Environment Agency, convened a Guiding Principles workshop on 25th April 2018 at the Agency’s offices in York. The workshop was attended by a cross-section of representatives from regulators, industry and consultancy that included participants from both the nuclear and non-nuclear sectors and regulators from all four UK jurisdictions. A wide ranging programme of presentations provided perspectives about the original Guiding Principles documents, regulatory drivers, local authority views on potential for going forward, and nuclear sector ways of working.
