This inspection, one of a series of planned inspections for 2022/23 at the GE Healthcare Ltd Grove Centre licensed nuclear site, was undertaken to judge compliance with Licence Condition (LC) 7 – Incidents on the site.

Interventions Carried Out by ONR

During this inspection I assessed the adequacy of the licensee’s arrangements for LC7 and for Operational Experience Feedback (OEF) as required by the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, international conventions and nuclear safety standards.

Explanation of Judgement if Safety System Not Judged to be Adequate


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

I inspected the licensee’s arrangements made under LC7 and for Operational Experience Feedback and judged that they meet the requirements of the relevant published guidance.

I viewed evidence of the implementation of the LC and OEF arrangements and discussed the implementation with the licensee and with employees on the site. Based on the evidence presented and the outcome of the discussions I am satisfied that the arrangements are being adequately implemented.

Conclusion of Intervention

Based on my findings I believe an ONR inspection rating of Green for LC7 is appropriate.
