The Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) is convened only during an emergency, to coordinate and conduct peer reviews of scientific and technical advice in order to inform decision-making at the cross Government, national level.

National level recommendations and lessons identified from Ministry of Defence nuclear accident exercises such as SENATOR 2011, including any related to the SAGE, are drawn up through the Department of Energy and Climate Change-led Nuclear Emergency Planning and Response Programme.
