In order to construct and operate a nuclear power station (or most other types of nuclear installation) in the UK, a nuclear site licence must be granted by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). The HSE has released, "Applying for a nuclear site licence for new nuclear power stations - A step-by-step guide".
This guide is aimed at organisations wishing to become a UK nuclear site licensee for the first time, and describes the actions that such an organisation should take in preparing a licence application. The guide should also act as a source of reference for organisations which already hold nuclear site licences in the UK and wish to apply for a licence to operate an installation on another site.
