Welcome
This is the website of the UK nuclear industry's Compensation Scheme for Radiation-Linked Diseases. This site has been created in order to provide potential claimants with the information they will need in order to make a claim and to provide them (and other interested persons) with information on what the Scheme is, why it was conceived and how it operates. There are also links to employers' and unions' websites, if you wish to know more about the Scheme participants, and links to sites offering information on the risks associated with radiation exposure.

The Scheme is a joint initiative between the nuclear industry's employers and their trades' unions and it enjoys the ongoing support of all parties as it provides a means of resolving claims without the need for court action (which is lengthy, stressful for all concerned and very expensive), which is more generous in it's assessment of cases than a court would probably be and awards compensation payments at lower levels of causation than would a court.

If you would like to make a claim under the Scheme, please go to the "Making a Claim" section of this site. The site provides information on the following subjects

» Scheme History - why the Scheme was conceived and how it has developed
» Scheme Employers, Trades' Unions & Specified Companies - Outbound links to their websites and also a listing of the Specified Companies.
» Making A Claim - Information on eligibility and how to make a claim.
» Case Processing - Information on how cases are processed and the target timescales for each stage.
» Q&A - Some frequently asked questions with answers.
» Annual Statement and reports - The Scheme's Annual Statement and progress reports
» Contact the Scheme - Details of how to contact the Compensation Scheme.
» Reference material and useful links - Information on this and other compensation schemes and the scientific basis.
» Freedom of Information Act - Details about the scheme, its activities and the way it operates as required by the Act.

We hope you find our site informative and easy to use. If you have any questions which remain unanswered or any comments on how you found our site (good or bad) please let us know by contacting the Scheme.
