Compliance Inspection and Joint Regulatory Project Update Meeting

Executive summary

Purpose of intervention

This report describes an inspection of Magnox Ltd's Bradwell licensed site, undertaken as part of a series of routine interventions set out in the Integrated Intervention Strategy document.

Interventions Carried Out by ONR

I carried out a planned inspection of the site arrangements for LC12 (Duly Authorised Persons and other Suitably Qualified and Experienced Persons) and LC26 (Control and Supervision of Operations), and attended a joint regulatory project update meeting.

Explanation of Judgement if Safety System Not Judged to be Adequate

This intervention did not include a safety system inspection.

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

I found Bradwell had broadly adequate arrangements for LC12 and LC26 but that the demonstration of implementation in some areas was below standard.

Conclusion of Intervention

In the areas I considered during the intervention I found that the arrangements for compliance with licence conditions 12 and 26 and their implementation at Bradwell were not adequate in some respects. Accordingly, the station made a commitment to improve the demonstration of compliance with LC12 and LC26.
