Bradwell Nuclear Licensed Site - Planned Inspections and Meetings

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

During the intervention I carried out an unannounced compliance inspection on licence condition (LC) 2 - Marking of the Site Boundary.

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.

Explanation of Judgement if Safety System Not Judged to be Adequate

This intervention did not include a safety system based inspection.

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

I found evidence that the site arrangements for compliance with the requirements of LC 2 are adequate.

The site has adequate arrangements to prevent unauthorised persons from entering the site.  The site was not fully compliant with the requirement to mark the boundary of the licensed site.  Immediate corrective action was taken and I confirmed that the boundaries were adequately marked before I left the site.

Conclusion of Intervention

In the areas I considered during the intervention I found that the implementation of the arrangements for compliance with LC 2 at Bradwell was to an adequate standard.
