Executive summary

Purpose of Intervention

The purpose of this inspection was to confirm compliance with Licence Condition 28 (Examination, Inspection, Maintenance & Testing) at the Magnox Limited Berkeley licensed nuclear site during the Covid-19 pandemic and was undertaken as part of the 2020/21 intervention plan.

Interventions Carried Out by ONR

The inspection targeted return to work arrangements as a result of Covid-19.

I carried out a planned Licence Condition 28 (Examination, Inspection, Maintenance & Testing) inspection at Berkeley & Oldbury sites.

Explanation of Judgement if Safety System Not Judged to be Adequate

Not applicable.

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

I examined the arrangements made and implemented by Magnox Ltd at both Oldbury & Berkeley to establish whether they were compliant with LC28.

I undertook plant walk-downs of designated radiological and non – radiological areas of the site to inspect the implementation of arrangements at the workplace. No significant matters were identified at Oldbury and one matter raised at Berkeley and a regulatory issue raised accordingly and has since been resolved.

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

Conclusion of Intervention

In my opinion, the licensee is complying with the requirements of LC 28 at both Berkeley & Oldbury.
