The intervention was part of a series of planned inspections of Oldbury licensed nuclear site during 2014-15 to check compliance with licence conditions. I undertook inspections against licence conditions 7 and 17 on the arrangements for notification, recording, investigating and reporting incidents and management systems that give due priority to safety.
This intervention did not include a safety system inspection.
I undertook similar inspections at Berkeley earlier in the week and so I was able to compare implementation of the licence conditions 7 and 17 during this inspection. I found Oldbury had adequate arrangements for notification, recording, investigating and reporting incidents. It had completed training senior staff in the use of some recently introduced procedures for reporting incidents. Oldbury was able to provide evidence of an adequate management system for controlling decommissioning activities.
In the areas I considered during the intervention I found that Oldbury had adequate arrangements in place to meet the requirements of licence conditions 7 and 17.
