NIA Essential Guide to nuclear supply chain

Companies looking  to get involved in the burgeoning civil nuclear market got a major boost this week with the publication of the “Essential Guide to Nuclear Supply Chain”.

The report, launched by the Nuclear Industry Association (NIA) with backing from the Department of Energy and Climate Change, Lloyds Register and leading nuclear companies contains a step-by-step guide to getting involved in the growing sector.

The Essential Guide is aimed at companies new to nuclear or looking to break-in to the sector and details guidance on a huge range of issues including the opportunities, routes to market, technical codes and quality standards expected of new entrants into the nuclear industry.

The report, which will be followed by a special half-day supply chain seminar in the new year, is part of the NIA’s cutting-edge SC@nuclear initiative which aims to get a new generation of manufacturing, engineering and supply companies involved in the nuclear sector to service what could be a major new build project.

Keith Parker, chief executive of the NIA said the report, put together by NIA member company Doosan Babcock, would be “required” reading for business development managers throughout the UK.

“The Essential Guide to Nuclear Supply Chain is an extremely informative document aimed at companies who may be interested in helping to deliver a new fleet of nuclear reactors in the UK.”

“The report is easy to read and is full of practical advice to help companies arrive at what could be a major business development decision. New nuclear build could be worth billons to the UK economy and we want new companies from all over Britain to get involved.”

The report has been sent to hundreds of companies already registered on the NIA’s supply chain website at 

A special SC@nuclear event is planned for the new year where experts in accreditation, quality standards and technical codes will give presentations and practical advice to companies considering expanding into the sector.
