Nuclear incident reporting

Fred WP Dawson made this Freedom of Information request to Ministry of Defence

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

Could you please provide me with information indicating to what extent MODs’ internal nuclear Regulator requirement for nuclear accident and incident reporting for MOD controlled sites parallels that of the ONR for civil sites and contractorised defence sites such as AWE.

If this is the case, has the requirement been updated to reflect the latest ONR change to incident reporting arrangements which are effective as from 1/1/12

Could you also please confirm that nuclear accident and incident reporting procedure for defence sites includes a requirement for the incidents to be recorded on the MOD’s central database Incident Recording Information System (IRIS).

Yours faithfully,

Fred WP Dawson
