Compliance inspection - Technical inspection guides

The purpose of the technical inspection guides is to facilitate a consistent approach to ONR's site Licence Condition compliance inspection by providing guidance to inspectors on what Licencee's arrangements should include to meet the requirements of the Licence Conditions. Although it is not their primary purpose, the technical inspection guides therefore also provide information for Licencees on ONR's expectations of the nature and content of their own arrangements.
