The purpose of this intervention was to undertake a Licence Condition (LC) compliance inspection at Aldermaston in line with the planned inspection programme contained in the AWE Integrated Intervention Strategy and associated Intervention Plans.
During this intervention I carried out the following inspections/activities:
The intervention was performed in line with ONR's guidance requirements (as described in our technical inspection guides) in the areas inspected.
This intervention did not include a safety system based inspection.
From the evidence sampled during this inspection I judge AWE's implementation of its arrangements for LC10 and LC12 to be in accordance with ONR's technical inspection guide with no formal ONR action required.
I engaged with AWE to obtain and update information on regulatory issues and operations.
Based on the planned compliance inspection undertaken against the requirements of LC10 and LC12, in the areas I inspected, I consider that the licensee has adequately implemented their arrangements; no formal ONR action is required.
