Energy Act 2013

Section 91: Provision of services or facilities

435.Subsection (1) allows the ONR to provide services or facilities to any person for the ONR’s purposes. This would allow, for example, the ONR to provide advice and information on nuclear information security to a (United Kingdom) company that was expecting to become a holder of sensitive nuclear information.

436.Subsection (2) would also allow the ONR to carry out activities that are within its expertise but not within its purposes. This can only be done with the permission of the Secretary of State. Examples of these activities would include providing advice on nuclear matters to other nations or to those in the United Kingdom who are manufacturing nuclear parts for an international market (not in the United Kingdom). The section provides for the ONR to undertake such activities, at a cost to be agreed by both parties. This would allow it to provide such services at a commercial rate, rather than on the basis upon which the Secretary of State sets the ONR’s fees under section 101.
