Guidance: The NDA Operating Model, roles of Site Licence Company

Clarification of respective roles and responsibilities of “NDA Operating Model” for ownership and operation of NDA nuclear licensed sites.



This guidance is to clarify the respective roles and responsibilities of the principal parties of the “NDA Operating Model” for the ownership and operation of nuclear licensed sites owned by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority. The potential for ambiguity or conflicted responsibilities arise from the separate, but overlapping duties in law of NDA (drawn from the Energy Act 2004) and the Site Licence Companies (SLCs) which are drawn from the Health, Safety, Environmental and other legislation and include the SLC’s obligations as holder of a nuclear site licence and disposal authorisations.
