NMP’s Response to Panorama Programme
On Monday 5th September 2016, Panorama broadcast a programme about Sellafield. This is NMP’s response:
Safety and security at the Sellafield site have always been the overriding priorities for NMP, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and Sellafield Ltd.
The former NMP employees interviewed by Panorama do not speak on behalf of NMP and we do not recognise their portrayal of conditions at Sellafield. Their opinions do not reflect the very real progress in safety performance and high hazard reduction that has been made on site; achievements that are a matter of public record.
NMP, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and Sellafield Ltd have made real and demonstrable progress, with the site achieving the best overall safety records in its history and some of its highest ever performance levels.
As of March 31 2016 the contract to own and operate Sellafield Ltd has been transferred back to the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority
