A nuclear safety check at the Rosyth Dockyard has found “several shortfalls” which were branded “significant” by inspectors. Site operator Babcock has been ordered to make “improvements” after a report by the Office of Nuclear Regulation (ONR) rated compliance against two key conditions as “amber”. The issues related to arrangements for nuclear safety roles at Rosyth Royal Dockyard Ltd (RRDL), and included “several significant gaps and errors in the records sampled”. The ONR said it involved “written arrangements and record keeping”, and that there was “no risk to the public or workers at Rosyth”.
