Letter for visitors: Stricter access controls at Petten Research Location

Dear visitor to Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) / Nuclear Research & Consultancy Group (NRG) / Mallinckrodt

You are planning to visit the Research Location in Petten. Because of NRG’s nuclear facilities, security at the Petten Research Location is a key priority for the management of the companies based on the site. We would therefore like to draw your attention to the fact that enhanced security measures apply when accessing the site.

It is only possible to visit the Petten Research Location if you are in possession of a valid passport or identity card. Please note: a driving licence will not be accepted.

If you wish to access the Petten Research Location in your car, a vehicle, boot and baggage inspection is carried out as standard procedure. Security staff will inspect your vehicle and may ask you to open the boot and to show the contents of your baggage. When conducting the vehicle inspection, security workers will also use mirrors to view the underside of the vehicle to identify any suspicious objects. These inspections are carried out on all visitors’ vehicles when entering and leaving the site.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Yours sincerely,

The management teams of
Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN)
Nuclear Research & Consultancy Group (NRG)
Mallinckrodt
