The Nuclear AMRC works with companies along the UK’s nuclear supply chain to help them compete by raising quality and productivity, reducing costs, and developing new capabilities and skills.
Our flagship Fit For Nuclear programme is a unique service to help UK manufacturers get ready to bid for work in civil nuclear, allowing companies to measure their operations against industry standards and take the necessary steps to close any gaps. We are now rolling out supply chain development programmes based on the Fit For model in other low-carbon sectors including offshore renewables, carbon capture, and hydrogen production.
Most of the companies working through our supplier development programmes are small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). By helping smaller manufacturers understand what the market expects from them, what they may be capable of supplying, and where they sit in the nuclear supply chain, we demystify the nuclear sector and remove barriers to entry.
Companies participating in our supply chain development programmes have reported (as of September 2023) that our support has helped them to win £3.2 billion of new contracts, creating or safeguarding more than 11,462 jobs, and securing £128 million additional private investment.
As well as our core supply chain development programmes, we offer tailored consultancy services including supply chain readiness level studies to build links and share knowledge between suppliers and top-tier customers, and help overseas developers develop their UK supply chains.
We are expanding our skills development services, working with industry and training partners to tackle skills gaps across the nuclear sector. We aim to ensure that training meets the needs of the nuclear supply chain, and gives people the best possible step up into a career in nuclear engineering and manufacturing.
We continue to work with our partners to develop our supply chain development services to meet evolving industry needs.

Fit For Nuclear (F4N) is a unique service to help manufacturing companies assess and develop their readiness to bid for work in the nuclear supply chain. Developed with the support of the industry’s top tier, F4N lets companies measure their operations against the standards required to supply the nuclear industry, and take the necessary steps to close any gaps.
Developed and delivered exclusively by the Nuclear AMRC, the F4N programme is supported by top-tier partners in new build and decommissioning. These industry leaders are using F4N to identify potential companies for their own supply chains.
More than 1000 companies have now completed the online F4N assessment, with most receiving ongoing support and development from the Nuclear AMRC team. More than 100 companies are now granted F4N after driving business improvements through a tailored action plan – see our directory of F4N companies for details, or visit the searchable F4N Connect portal to find suppliers for your specific needs.
