This inspection was one of a series of planned inspections for 2020/21, which are informed by the ONR Decommissioning Fuel and Waste (DFW) sub-division strategy.
This inspection examined the adequacy of Magnox Limited’s (ML) arrangements and their implementation on the Trawsfynydd site, against the background of returning from a Covid-19 pause period, for compliance with Licence Conditions (LC): LC 10 (Training), LC 12 (Duly Authorised and other Suitably Qualified and Experienced Persons), LC 26 (Control and supervision of operations), LC 28 (Examination, Inspection, Maintenance and Testing) and LC 36 (Organisational Capability). I also completed a walk-down of the Trawsfynydd radiological controlled area with a Trawsfynydd site safety representative; and discussed with the site integration manager the impact of the site pause on Trawsfynydd’s planned activities through to the end of FY 21/22.
Based on the evidence examined it is my judgement that ML is effectively implementing arrangements for complying with LC 10, 12, 26, 28 and 36 at Trawsfynydd.
I identified no matters that in my opinion could adversely affect nuclear safety. My findings were shared with and accepted by the licensee.
