Nuclear Decommissioning

RPS has been a leading provider of specialist safety and risk consultancy services to the UK nuclear sector (civil and defence) for over 30 years.

Our principal area of expertise is in support of nuclear safety case development and preparation. RPS provides expertise to a full range of industry clients and across a wide variety of facilities.
