(c)the date on which it is anticipated that the work with ionising radiation will commence or, if it has already commenced, a statement to that effect;

(d)a general description of the premises or place including the geographical location, meteorological, geological, hydrographic conditions and, where material, the history of the premises, except that in the case of transport a general description shall be given of either—

(i)the starting and end points of the journey and transhipment points, or

(ii)the criteria to be used for route selection;

(e)in the case of an assessment by an operator, a description of any radioactive substance on the premises which is likely to exceed any quantity or mass specified in Schedule 2 or Schedule 3, as the case may be, which description shall where practicable include details of the radionuclides present and their likely maximum quantities;

(f)in the case of an assessment by a carrier, a description of any radioactive substance which is likely to exceed any quantity or mass specified in Schedule 4 or Schedule 3, as the case may be, which description shall where practicable include details of the radionuclides present and their likely maximum quantities;

(g)except in the case of an assessment relating to transport, a plan of the premises in question and a map of the environs to a scale large enough to enable the premises and any features which could affect the general risk in an emergency to be identified;

(h)a diagram and description of any single plant or enclosed system containing more than the quantity or mass of any radioactive substance specified in Schedule 2 or Schedule 3, as the case may be, or, in the case of the transport of more than the quantity or mass of any radioactive substance specified in Schedule 4 or Schedule 3, as the case may be, the nature of the containment for the radioactive substance, the type of vehicle and the means of securing the load within or on the vehicle;

(l)information concerning the management systems and staffing arrangements by which the radioactive substance is controlled and by which the procedures are controlled;

(m)except in the case of an assessment relating to transport, information about the size and distribution of the population in the vicinity of premises to which the report relates;

(n)an assessment of the area which is likely to be affected by the dispersal of any radioactive substance as a result of any radiation emergency and the period of time over which such dispersal is likely to take place;

(o)an assessment of the likely exposures to ionising radiation of any person or class of persons as a result of any radiation emergency; and
