ABOUT GNSP

Global Nuclear Security Partners is the coming together of two leading UK nuclear security experts. With over 50 years intelligence and security experience between us in the UK Government, British Armed Forces and private sector, we have worked across the civil and defence nuclear sectors and in nearly all parts of the nuclear fuel cycle. We have led on strategic and operational level UK counter-proliferation work, developed a thorough understanding of international nuclear sectors and their relevant fuel-cycles. We have worked extensively with overseas partners and delivered world class security-related training and education, including helping foreign governments to develop national level approaches on working between industry and government in protecting Critical National Infrastructure. We have led on strategic policy & operational advice relating to Plutonium & Highly Enriched Uranium security & transportation, including the consolidation of all UK holdings and the management of the threat to the whole of the UK civil nuclear sector.

Our team have been involved in the technical authoring of the UK’s Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) civil nuclear regulation guidance document Security Assessment Principles (SyAPs). They have also been engaged by ONR to develop the Potential Adversary Force (PADFOR) and the Guide for Smaller Duty Holders guidance.  We were responsible for the design of the UK Ministry of Defence's Threat & Vulnerability Analysis Peer Review (TVAPR) methodology and have trained security managers throughout the UK and overseas.  We have supported nuclear clients as diverse as: EDF; UK Nuclear Decommissioning Authority; the Atomic Weapons Establishment; GE Healthcare; Babcock (including Rosyth and Devonport dockyards); BAE Submarines; URENCO and the US National Nuclear Security Administration. We’ve worked with the armed police capability of the Ministry of Defence Police, Civil Nuclear Constabulary and US teams in protecting nuclear material and developing doctrine, and with the infrastructure police of some Middle Eastern Governments.

 

 

We are UK based but internationally focussed.
