Details of any breach of licence conditions by a licensee during the financial year of which the CEO is aware

Breaches with significant safety implications

During the year, the CEO was not made aware of any breaches with significant safety implications.

Breaches with no or minor safety implications

During the year, the CEO was made aware of six breaches with no or minor safety implications:

  • A licence holder failed to inform ARPANSA within the appropriate timeline of a change to its organisational structure
  • A licence holder exceeded its activity holding limit
  • A licence holder failed to have its security plan endorsed by an accredited assessor. This occurred at two separate facilities operated by the same licence holder resulting in two non-compliances
  • A licence holder did not conduct a risk assessment for controlled apparatus

In all cases appropriate corrective actions were undertaken by the licence holder.
