The UK Atomic Energy Authority is a non departmental government body carrying out research into the potential of nuclear fusion as a future source of energy.

At the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE) the Authority hosts the world's largest magnetic fusion experiment, JET (Joint European Torus), on behalf of its European partners. The JET facilities are collectively used by all European fusion laboratories under the EUROfusion consortium.

The JET machine and associated facilities generate quantities of radioactive and trade effluents. The trade effluents include aqueous process wastes, cooling water, wash water and ground water which subsequently discharge into Controlled Waters. All trade effluent discharges are subject to specific consent issued by the Environment Agency EA. This consent states limits which CCFE must adhere to. Discharges must be controlled and monitored to ensure CCFE's compliance with the consent issued under the Water Resources Act 1991. CCFE requires a Contractor with experience in carrying out sample analysis of aqueous trade effluent. The Contractor should be able to meet a 26.5 hour turnaround for collection of sample(s). In exceptional circumstances this turnaround could be extended to 30.5 hours.
