UK Office for Nuclear Regulation has published revised site licensing
guidance, which will be used to review the application by NNB Genco for a
site license to build two EPR reactors at Hinkley Point.
NNB Genco is the consortium of EDF and Centrica that has applied for a site license for Hinkley Point C.
document replaces “The licensing of nuclear installations” issued in
March 2007. The revised document takes account of the government’s
National Policy Statement for Nuclear Power Generation (2009) and recent
changes in legislation, including the Energy Act (2008) and the
Planning Act (2008), ONR said.
