About the report

This is a progress report on the review of trigger values being undertaken by the Office of the Supervising Scientist, it is not a report on the final position of the Supervising Scientist. Apart from recording progress to date for documenting purposes, this report informs internal parties and external stakeholders of the issues identified so far and the proposed work to be done in the final stage of the review. Thus providing internal and external stakeholders with a document on which to base discussion and offer feedback on the process.

The Office of the Supervising Scientist does not recommend any changes to the existing trigger values at this stage but proposes to finalise the review (with input from stakeholders) and recommend new values to the Ranger and Jabiluka Minesite Technical Committees prior to the end of the current financial year. The updated trigger values will then be published in the Supervising Scientist's Annual Report 2003-2004.
