Services testimonials

I was delighted that we achieved a satisfactory demonstration of our reactor emergency arrangements. The scenario was realistic, but testing. The quality of the exercise documentation produced by Ionactive was as usual first class.

– Simon Franklin, Imperial College London -

Mark, it's been great working with you over the last year, not only is our house in better order but the wider workforce genuinely appreciate the time you have spent reassuring them

– DF, X-ray Technology Company -

Sincere thanks, Mark, for the energy, enthusiasm, and, excellent, training, given to my site teams, for two very different decommissioning projects. The assistance and guidance, provided, through RA requirements, and your pragmatic RPA technical support, for both challenging projects – fume filter plant decommissioning and overall site decontamination, was central to the complete success achieved, against reasonable expectations.
