Quarterly Report for Generic Design Assessment (GDA) published

Kevin Allars, Director of New Build GDA at the HSE, and Joe McHugh, Head of Radioactive Substances Regulation at the Environment Agency, have today published the third Quarterly Report for 2010 (July–September).

This provides an update on our work to assess the safety cases for the new nuclear power station designs and looks at the key challenges ahead.

Progress continues on the assessment, however, it is expected that some limited GDA work will be required by the RPs beyond June 2011 to address some of the issues arising, therefore it is looking more likely that we could issue an Interim DAC rather than a DAC in June 2011.

Although we are confident that we can complete a meaningful assessment by June 2011, this remains a significant challenge and we are relying on the requesting parties to provide us with the appropriate, and timely information we require to complete our assessment.
