The Nuclear Industry Association is a highly effective advocate, providing a dynamic and credible voice on behalf of its membership. Whether your business is solely based in nuclear, or nuclear makes up a part of what you do, or if you are looking to join the sector, there are many ways NIA membership can benefit your business.

Grow your business

Our extensive Business Group programme provides the perfect opportunity to meet leaders in the nuclear sector and keep up to date with the latest industry developments and hear about business opportunities.

The Groups, which cover New Build, Decommissioning and Existing Operations, Legal and Financial Affairs, Exports and External Relations, are led by industry for industry to ensure members get the most up-to-date and relevant information for their business.

Through these groups our members meet more people, find new partners and increase their visibility across the nuclear sector.

In addition to the Business Group programme, we work closely with UK Trade and Investment to secure places for nuclear companies on trade missions which we advertise exclusively to member companies.

Stay ahead of the competition

Our unique nuclear industry Trade Directory is an exclusive tool for NIA members.

It is a comprehensive database of the NIA membership which provides unrivalled access to over 250 nuclear sector companies. It gives you the opportunity to search for products and services and also means your company will be seen by the right people, allowing you to stay one step ahead of the competition.

As an NIA member you will also have the unique opportunity to contribute articles for our quarterly magazine, Industry Link which will help to promote your business across the sector.

Have a voice to media and the Government

The NIA is the voice of the nuclear industry in Westminster and in the media. We advocate for all parts of the sector, from existing operations to new build, the supply chain and decommissioning. We want to ensure the nuclear industry can grow and help you take advantage of opportunities at home and overseas.

Members have the opportunity to influence our policy positions through our Business Groups and inform our consultation responses, meaning your thoughts will go directly to policymakers within Government.

We share knowledge exclusively with members through our weekly and monthly newsletters which highlight important industry news and key legislative and regulatory changes you need to be aware of.

Save money

In addition to free attendance at our Business Group meetings, all members receive discounts to attend and exhibit at our flagship annual conferences where you’ll hear about new opportunities and meet senior leaders from across the industry and Government.

Members also receive free copies of, and discounted advertising rates in our quarterly magazine, Industry Link. The magazine is circulated to over 5,000 people including all levels of Government and industry.

We are also able to negotiate discounts for members to other nuclear events and conferences in the UK and overseas, which we advertise on our website and through our member communications channels.

Keep up to date

Our members receive the most up to date information on industry developments and policy updates through regular newsletters and briefing papers. In addition, important information is emailed directly to our specific interest groups, so you can tailor the information you receive.

Our website also hosts a secure members’ area where you can access the Trade Directory as well as the presentations given at the Business Group meetings. Meaning you don’t miss out on the vital information from the meeting, if you couldn’t attend.
