UK regulator to merge leadership roles
The UK's Office for Nuclear Regulation has announced plans to align its leadership structure to other nuclear regulators around the world with a new combined post of chief nuclear inspector and chief executive. CNI Mark Foy will take up the new combined post, subject to detailed government approvals. A new senior regulatory role, executive director of operations/deputy chief inspector, will also be established. The exact timescales have yet to be confirmed, but the changes will come into effect later in 2021.
