2.6.2 Security plan

In most countries special security regulations exist that require security plans for certain industries, e.g., biological industry, nuclear industry. In general these plans and arrangements have to be approved by the regulator. This means that for sites of concern these regulations have to be followed and implemented during temporary building works and actions as needed by a remediation program. Compliance with security clearance of all staff, including key sub-contractors, is expected, as a minimum, on these sites.

The level of clearance required will be commensurate with activities, and should be confirmed with the site. In addition, each site will have its own security access arrangements which should be established at the earliest opportunity prior to the planning stage. Special arrangements, for example, may need to be made for courier deliveries and collections. Inevitably the need to comply with security has budget and time implications for the project.
