Nuclear Supply Chain

It is the responsibility of the supplier to protect any information provided to them as part of a tender or contract

The requirements on suppliers are:

  • To follow principles of ISO 27001 – and, in some circumstances, certify to the government’s Cyber Essentials Scheme
  • To be able to secure sensitive information
  • To understand the need for security in the supply chain
  • To understand why certain types of information is being protected and how to identify it
  • To have policies and procedures to underpin security

The Process

In order to make tenders and contracts run as smoothly as possible, all suppliers need to be aware of the security procedure that they must follow for tenders and contracts involving Sensitive Nuclear Information (SNI).


The Contract Security team expect suppliers to complete and sign a Security Declaration and Risk Assessment should the tender contain SNI that is protectively marked. Indelible Data Consulting provide services to help fulfil these requirements


The successful supplier will be subject to a physical security assessment at the premises where operations are to be carried out.
