Devonport complies with Improvement Notice 

The Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) can confirm that Devonport Royal Dockyard Ltd (DRDL) has now complied with an Improvement Notice served in September 2020.

The notice was served after DRDL failed to carry out scheduled maintenance tests on an effluent extraction system which is a nuclear safety system used to support maintenance and repair activities within the licensed site.

Throughout the duration of the Improvement Notice ONR has worked closely with DRDL’s internal regulator which has involved sustained regulatory scrutiny. ONR is now satisfied that DRDL has completed the necessary actions to satisfy the requirements of the Improvement Notice.
