EDF and Doosan Babcock comply with ONR Notices

31 January, 2018

The Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) has today confirmed that EDF Energy Nuclear Generation Ltd and Doosan Babcock have complied with their respective Improvement Notices served last year at Hinkley Point B nuclear power station.

Legal notices were issued after an ONR investigation into an incident in April 2017 revealed gaps in compliance of legal requirements by the licensee, EDF, and contractor Doosan Babcock.

ONR is satisfied that both EDF and Doosan Babcock have met the requirements of the Improvement Notice, and will continue to monitor the situation as part of our ongoing scrutiny of health and safety at the site.
