unstar this property answer text <p>Nuclear power is a proven technology with modern reactors capable of reliably producing low-carbon electricity. Any new activity in the UK involving ionising radiation must first go through a process of regulatory Justification. This process requires that the overall societal benefits associated with the activity outweigh any potential health detriments. For any application involving a nuclear power station, the reliability of the proposed design and implications for energy security are carefully considered.</p><p> </p><p>My rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State in December 2014 decided that the UK ABWR – the technology proposed by Horizon Nuclear Power for deployment at Wylfa Newydd – was Justified for use in the UK. This decision followed a robust assessment of the application, and periods of consultation on both the application and proposed decision. The full decision is available at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-justification-of-practices-involving-ionising-radiation-regulations-2004" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-justification-of-practices-involving-ionising-radiation-regulations-2004</a>, with Chapter 5 specifically addressing the topics of energy security and reliability. Further, in December 2017 the independent UK nuclear regulators granted design acceptance for the UK ABWR technology.</p>
