Planned participation in the Emergency Planning Consultative Committee (EPCC) meeting. The intervention formed part of the 2015/16 ONR intervention programme at the Urenco UK Limited licensed site at Capenhurst.
Regulatory advice was provided on a range of emergency planning matters at the Emergency Planning Consultative Committee meeting.
No system inspection was made during this intervention.
Regulatory advice was provided across a range of on and off site emergency planning matters at the EPCC meeting, attended by a range of agencies involved in off site emergency planning managers, (other than Cheshire Fire & Rescue Service).
It was confirmed that the next Level Two emergency exercise, due by April 2017, would be partially based on a scenario at the Tails Management Facility, (TMF), (due to be actively commissioned by that time), supplemented by a demonstration of aspects of radiological protection, emanating from a coincident scenario on the main Urenco UK Limited site. This would therefore facilitate a demonstration to ONR of the key aspects of the ‘off site’ radiological protection (REPPIR) emergency planning arrangements.
There was a broad scope of discussion between agencies involved in ‘off site’ emergency planning at Capenhurst, combined with the acceptance of the regulatory advice provided at this EPCC meeting.
