British Nuclear Group Sellafield attacked by the European Commission

The accounting at British Nuclear Group Sellafield has been attacked by the
European Commission, despite being cleared by its UK auditors last year.

The commission said that procedures at Sellafield relating to accounting and
reporting were not up to standard, after auditors discovered that 30kg of
plutonium was unaccounted for at the Sellafield complex last year.

At the time, the UK Atomic Energy Agency Authority said the loss was due to
‘uncertainties inherent in the measurement systems used to produce basic data’.

The EC have issued a warning and will carry out further assessment to ensure
this happens. It did, however, acknowledge that it did not find evidence that
nuclear material was actually lost.
