Exemptions applied

Personal details have been redacted under Regulation 13 of Environmental Information Regs 2004 - Personal Information, this is an absolute exemption and not subject to the Public Interest Test.

Additionally some information within these documents has been redacted on national security grounds under Regulation 12(5) (a) - international relations, defence, national security or public safety.

This exception is subject to a public interest test, which is detailed below.

PIT (Public Interest Test) if applicable

Factors for disclosure

Openess and transparency issues related to the nuclear industry are subject to scrutiny and debate, so there is public interest in information related to nuclear activities and the release of such information.

Factors for withholding

The release could aid the commission of a malicious act and the public would not expect HSE to release information that would aid such an act.


In my view the balance is clearly in favour of limiting the potential for a malicious act.
