ARPANSA is engaging in public consultation on the draft Regulatory Guide for Safety Analysis Report for controlled facilities.
A Safety Analysis Report (SAR) must be included as part of a facility licence application for seeking authorisation of any of the following:
This is a requirement under Section 46 (1) (e) of the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Regulations 2018 (the Regulations).
The holder of a facility licence must take all reasonably practicable steps to manage the safety of the facility described in the licence, including having in place a SAR. This is a requirement under Section 60(1)(c) of the Regulations.
This document is written in the context of the legislative and regulatory framework of the Commonwealth of Australia for the controlled facilities owned by Commonwealth entities.
The objectives of the guides are:
No. This regulatory guide provides guidance to the applicant or licence holder in preparing a safety analysis report for non-reactor nuclear facilities and other controlled facilities taking into account international good practice.
