NATIONAL NUCLEAR REGULATOR  

Where's the transparency in the National Nuclear Regulator board?

The process for appointing the board of the state-owned National Nuclear Regulator is legally meant to be transparent, to strengthen oversight in this potentially dangerous industry. But the Cabinet has failed to honour this requirement. OUTA queried this and officials were slow to respond, then said that the civil society representatives legally required as part of the board will be identified in a restricted process. OUTA objects to this.

 

Eskom intends to extend the life of Koeberg nuclear power station but the National Nuclear Regulator, which watches over Koeberg, has dropped its civil society representatives
