This is the final (July 2005) report 'Clearance and Exemption Principles, Processes and Practices for use by the Nuclear Industry'. This is a very comprehensive document for the UK nuclear industry weighing in at over 200 pages.

The report presents a summary of regulatory background, details interactions with other legislation, outlines industry practices, describes management principles, presents clearance and sentencing processes, details statistics and discusses measurement.
