We expect the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) to submit a report to DECC to support us in our considerations on the policy options in due course. Informed by the advice from NDA, ministers will then make an assessment of the options and decide on the appropriate next steps.

The NDA intend to publish a public position paper in due course summarising the outcomes of the latest phase of work.
