Public consultation on applications by MoD and RRDL to dispose low level radioactive waste at Rosyth Naval Dockyard

SEPA has received two separate, but related, applications in connection with the dismantling of seven redundant nuclear submarines currently stored afloat at the Rosyth naval dockyard in Fife.

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has applied to obtain a Letter of Approval (LoA) from SEPA to dispose of low level radioactive wastes (LLW) by their transfer to Rosyth Royal Dockyard Limited (RRDL) who will subsequently treat and dispose of all submarine LLW. RRDL currently has a Radioactive Substances Act 1993 (RSA 93) Authorisation which SEPA granted in 2008. However, that Authorisation does not include LLW arising from submarine dismantling operations. Therefore, RRDL has applied to SEPA to obtain a new RSA 93 Authorisation.

SEPA will determine the MoD and RRDL applications separately. However, both applications set out arrangements to manage LLW from submarine dismantling operations at Rosyth naval dockyard. For this reason, SEPA has decided on a joint stakeholder consultation process and to seek stakeholder comments on both applications at the same time.

In undertaking this consultation, SEPA is looking for responses on any matters that your organisation, or you as an individual, are aware of that could influence SEPA's decision whether to grant the LoA and the RSA 93 Authorisation, or not. Our consultation comprises information included in the document, below, titled "Public Consultation Document - SEPA" and information in the References, also below.
