Purpose of Intervention

This inspection, one of a series of planned inspections for 2018/19 as described in ONR’s Decommissioning, Fuel & Waste (DFW) sub-division’s strategy, was undertaken to assess compliance with licence condition (LC) 14 – Safety Documentation at the Grove Centre nuclear licensed site, Amersham.

Interventions Carried Out by ONR

LC14 requires the licensee to make and implement adequate arrangements for the production and assessment of safety cases consisting of documentation to justify safety during the design, construction, manufacture, commissioning, operation and decommissioning phases of the installation.

This intervention was carried out to assess the licensee’s arrangements against ONR’s requirements.
