HSC Consults on Redrafted Guidance for Nuclear Reactors Decommissioning Regulations

HSE InfoLine : 10 March, 2005  (Company News)
The Health and Safety Commission has published a consultative document seeking comments on redrafted guidance from the Health and Safety Executive on the Nuclear Reactors (Environmental Impact Assessment for Decommissioning) Regulations 1999 (EIADR99).
The Health and Safety Commission has published a consultative document seeking comments on redrafted guidance from the Health and Safety Executive on the Nuclear Reactors (Environmental Impact Assessment for Decommissioning) Regulations 1999 (EIADR99).

Issues raised by consultees in a previous exercise, in particular demand for greater clarity on several issues, have been addressed in the redrafted guidance. In addition, experience gained from considering applications to undertake decommissioning projects at two nuclear power stations has enabled HSE to set some standards on what it expects from submissions and how these will be dealt with. The redrafted guidance should, therefore, benefit future applicants by highlighting these standards and requirements.

The guidance has been redrafted so that each regulation is reproduced followed by interpretative guidance. HSE believes this new approach is more user-friendly and easier to understand. It also provides some helpful interpretative advice on a number of difficult EIADR-related issues. HSE intends to publish the guidance later this year as an online 'live' document that can be updated as and when required, for example when the EIADR99 need to be amended.
