A to Z Glossary

Originally developed by our colleagues at Burges Salmon for their 'Guide to Nuclear Law', this A to Z glossary has been expanded to assist organisations and individuals interested in joining supply chain initiatives.

The nuclear industry uses a unique array of jargon, terminology and acronyms, which can be bewildering and confusing to newcomers. This Glossary of Key Terms and Acronyms has been produced to assist those new to the UK civil nuclear industry, by explaining and de-mystifying some of the terminology that will be encountered on a daily basis. Understanding the terminology will lead to a greater understanding of the sector, its components and how it works.

As with any glossary, different people will have different views on the emphasis and interpretation of terms. We are keen for readers to contribute items or re-define them to keep the Glossary refreshed, up to date and as comprehensive and useful to readers as possible.

Burges Salmon hope that you find the Glossary a useful aid in your introduction to the nuclear industry. If you would like to suggest any changes or additions or have any enquiries on content or any issues raised then please contact :
