EOGAN event: The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority in Britain (30 June)

EOGAN organised a seminar for anyone with an interest in energy archives – the case study of particularly challenging nuclear archives will be analysed.
The seminar will be on 30 June, 14 – 15.30 BST.

The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) faced specific challenges relating to very long-term digital preservation of records, and existing maturity models were not adequate to their requirements. In response to this, through a collaboration between the NDA and the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC), the Rapid Assessment Model (RAM) was developed. The DPC is a membership organization based in the UK (but with an international outlook). RAM is a maturity model for digital preservation that is quick and easy to use and is firmly based on existing digital preservation good practice. It is applicable to any organisation with a need to look after digital information for the long term and allows organisations to establish where they are now and set goals for moving forward in digital preservation.


• Introduction to EOGAN, the European Energy Archives Network (Marta Musso, President; Kolya Abramsky, archives liaison officer)

• Overview of the NDA and its information management requirements (Martin Robb, NDA National Programme Manager Information Governance; Gordon Reid, Nuclear Archivist, Nucleus)

• Introduction to digital preservation, the DPC and RAM (Jenny Mitcham, Head of Good Practice and Standards for the DPC, responsible for collaboration with the NDA)

The event will be online through the platform Gotomeeting, offered by Archives Portal Europe.
