This was one of a series of planned Licence Condition (LC) compliance inspections of the Dungeness A Site for 2020/21.

Its purpose was to confirm the adequacy of asset management at the site under arrangements made to comply with LC28 (examination, inspection, maintenance and testing).  This was a joint inspection with the EA.

Explanation of Judgement if Safety System Not Judged to be Adequate


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

From the evidence examined I judged that the licensee’s implementation of its asset management arrangements under LC 28 is adequate.

I undertook plant walk-downs and noted improvements have been made in the overall management of the site since my previous inspection visit.  It was also noted that access to high risk areas of the site and to areas under the control of the Construction, Design and Management Regulations is being adequately controlled.

I provided feedback to the site on the inspection findings at a close-out meeting with management representatives.

Conclusion of Intervention

I am satisfied that the licensee has implemented adequate arrangements to safely manage the assets at the Dungeness A Site.
