He has over 20 years’ experience in nuclear and radiation industries, including as an operator at nuclear facilities and as a Nuclear Regulator for the Environment Agency, where he inspected radiation protection measures in place at those facilities. Mr Fisher is the NDA representative at a number of industry groups in the UK, including the National Dose Assessment Working Group and the Nuclear Sites Energy Forum. He covered:
