holding answer 12 October 2006

The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) assumed responsibility for the decommissioning and clean up of the UK's civil nuclear legacy—which includes the Berkeley nuclear site—on 1 April 2005. The NDA requires each of its sites to produce Life Time Plans which set out the total scope of activities which need to be undertaken over the sites' planned lifetime to bring it to its proposed end state. In this context the NDA expects the Health and Safety Executive's Nuclear Installations Inspectorate to have completed the de-licensing of the former BNFL laboratories at Berkeley by the end of December.
