U.K. Nuclear Report Says No Reason to Curb Atomic Operations

October 11, 2011

Oct. 11 (Bloomberg) -- The U.K.’s nuclear inspector published its final assessment of the country’s reactors, seven months after a Japanese earthquake and tsunami crippled the Fukushima complex, raising questions about the safety of atomic plants worldwide.

The review found no reason to curtail the operation of U.K. operating sites, according to an e-mailed statement today. There are no “fundamental weaknesses” in the U.K. nuclear licensing system or the “safety assessment principles” that underpin it, the report showed.
