Reviews of nuclear facilities and operations
We have carried out a number of surveys of nuclear facilities and operations, including equipment upgrades for plant safety. For example, we have:
- Reported on the main control room upgrades at the Oskarshamn nuclear power plant (NPP) in Sweden.
- Reviewed operations and the regulatory framework of nuclear fuel cycle (NFC) facilities at Sellafield. We identified and analysed key issues for the main NFC facilities and operations, including waste management.
- Reviewed control systems for non-radioactive chemicals at reprocessing facilities at Sellafield, and provided information on discharge limits and actual discharge levels for major gas, liquid and solid chemical wastes.
- Attended and reported on a seminar organised by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) on the revised Safety Assessment Principles (SAPs) for nuclear facilities.
