Abstract A detailed audit of safety management at the Dounreay nuclear site was conducted in 1998. The audit report made 143 recommendations. Interim reports were published in 1999 and 2000 on the progress made in implementing the recommendations (see CIS 00-1438). This final report groups the original recommendations into three kinds: those that have been implemented, those that will be implemented over the medium term, and those that will be implemented as part of the site's long-term restoration plan after decommissioning. Contents: responses of the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Agency (UKAEA) to the audit recommendations; Dounreay site restoration plan; implications for other UKAEA sites; conclusions.
