Reliable, Robust and Resilient: DPC supports Digital Infrastructure Project for Nuclear Decommissioning Authority

Added on 8 June 2018

In a 2-year partnership starting in August 2018 the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) has begun a new project which will establish a programme of work for digital preservation at the Nuclear Decommissioning Agency (NDA) in the UK, enabling also a significant expansion of the DPC’s capacity to deliver for members.

The NDA has been charged by the UK and Scottish Governments with the complicated task of decommissioning and cleaning the seventeen principal nuclear energy plants in the UK, a task accurately described as the largest and most important environmental restoration programme in Europe.  The extended life cycle of the programme, set alongside robust commitments to security, integrity and safety, means the NDA approaches its work with a profound commitment to long-term information management, ensuring the right information is available to the right people in a format they can use and with the confidence that it can be trusted.  Therefore, amongst its many challenges, the NDA is by default required to become a trusted leader for information management and digital preservation.
