AWE - LC35 inspection

Executive summary

Purpose of intervention

The purpose of the intervention was to undertake a LC35 inspection as planned in the weapons inspection plan.

Interventions Carried Out by ONR

During this intervention I met with the licensees personnel and a contractor representative and inspected their arrangements for compliance with LC 35 within a decommissioning facility. I also met with the licensee's personnel to gather information.

Explanation of Judgement if Safety System Not Judged to be Adequate

This was not a system based inspection.

Key Findings, Inspector's Opinions and Reasons for Judgements Made

I met with the licensees personnel and inspected the arrangements and their implementation in this area. Whilst there were some minor areas for improvement, I was content that these were being addressed by the licensee and considered compliance was adequate.

Conclusion of Intervention

Based upon the evidence I sampled during the inspection and the licensees existing action plan for the minor shortfalls identified, I judged that there was no need for further regulatory action.
