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.
During the intervention I carried out compliance inspections on licence conditions (LC):
I attended a number of meetings that provided progress updates and opportunity to influence the work programmes to decommission the site and to transition it into its care and maintenance phase.
This intervention did not include a safety system based inspection.
I found evidence that the Bradwell site meets the LC11 requirements for emergency arrangements. I noted however that some supporting project level contingency plans should be better interfaced with the ONR approved site emergency plan.
The LC24 requirements for operating instruction were being applied satisfactorily within the Ponds facility.
The application of the arrangements for ensuring the requirements of LC28 for examination, inspection, maintenance and testing activities on site was found to be robust. However some opportunities were identified to review and re-certify some work control documentation.
In the areas I considered during the intervention I found that the implementation of the arrangements for compliance with LC11, LC24 and LC28 at Bradwell was to an adequate standard.
