Joseph Johnson - Department for Business, Innovation and Skills

The commencement of the Triennial Review of the UK Atomic Energy Authority was announced in Parliament on 22 July 2014 through a Written Ministerial Statement. I am now pleased to announce the completion of the Review.

The UK Atomic Energy Authority has as its principal mission to position the UK as a leader in a future, sustainable energy economy by advancing fusion science and technology and related technologies to the point of commercialisation. In addition to its main mission, the Authority manages a campus development portfolio at the Culham and Harwell sites and a number of other responsibilities that arise from historical civil nuclear programmes.

The Review concludes that the functions performed by the UK Atomic Energy Authority are still required and that it should be retained as an Executive Non Departmental Public Body. However, the review recognises that there are potential benefits for the Authority to merge with another relevant science body. It therefore recommends that the Authority should commence work to assess the viability of such a merger, with a view to implementation from 2018.

The Review also examined the Governance arrangements for the UK Atomic Energy Authority in line with guidance on good corporate governance set out by the Cabinet Office. The Review concluded that the Authority governance largely complies with Cabinet Offices principles of good corporate governance, but has also identified several opportunities to improve its functions.

The full report of the review of the UK Atomic Energy Authority can be found on the Gov.UK website and copies have been placed in the Libraries of both Houses.
