The nuclear installations inspectorate (NII) has not yet identified a date for granting a consent to operate the Sellafield MOX plant (SMP) facility. Sellafield Ltd., as holder of the site licence and responsibility for safety on the site, will formally request a consent to operate the MOX plant from the NII when it believes that a satisfactory demonstration of successful commissioning has been achieved and an appropriate safety case submitted in support of the application.
