Thank you for your email of 15 March – please see the below response from
our technical team:
 
The peer review must be completed by a Radioactive Substances Regulations
Technical Specialist and due to operational pressures, this was
significantly delayed. However, the peer review was completed on 1 April
2021. The draft permit will now be sent to the applicant for their
comments and approval. The permit will be issued after that process has
been completed.
 
This information is supplied subject to the notice which can be viewed via
the following link:
