This section provides access to Devonport Royal Dockyard site-specific regulatory and related information including Environmental Monitoring Results and Local Liaison Committee arrangements (see links at the bottom of this page).
Radiation (Emergency Preparedness and Public Information Regulations 2001 (REPPIR) establishes a framework from which to protect the public from radiation accidents. The presence of nuclear-powered submarines at Devonport means there is a small risk of a radiation emergency.
REPPIR requires the Ministry of Defence and Babcock as the on-site operators for Devonport Royal Dockyard, to have an emergency plan in place to deal with any reasonably foreseeable radiation emergency.
