LC11 - Emergency Arrangements: I inspected LLWR's documented procedures, standards, internal assurance, records and operational experience, including selection processes for key post holders, and not least my interview with the appointed process owner. Within the scope of this inspection, in my opinion LLWR provided sufficient evidence to demonstrate the adequacy of their emergency management arrangements.

LC25 and Operational Records; I inspected LLWR's management arrangements, comprising Standards and procedures and examined sample records and work instructions relating to Emergency arrangements, and interviewed the process owners responsible for document control.

I found no significant shortfalls in my inspection of a wide range of documentary and verbal evidence provided by LLWR to demonstrate the adequacy of their management arrangements for licence conditions 11 and 25.
