The Nuclear Industry Association is the trade association for the civil nuclear industry in the United Kingdom.

History[edit]

It began as the British Nuclear Forum in 1963.

It was registered as a company on 29 March 1993.

Structure[edit]

It is situated on Pall Mall (A4) in Carlton House, London. The World Nuclear Association is based in the same building.

Function[edit]

It represents the British nuclear industry as a whole. It publishes the quarterly Industry Link magazine.[1] It represents around 59,000 workers in the industry, but membership of the organisation is only via companies.

In December each year it hosts the Energy Choices annual conference.[2] James Lovelock, a proponent of nuclear power (to the chagrin of environmentalists), has spoken at this event, as has Sir Patrick Moore.
