Safety procedures at a nuclear power plant in eastern Sweden have been criticised by inspectors, according to reports.

The Forsmark nuclear plant, 130 kilometres north of Stockholm, received the criticism in an inspection report from the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM), local media say.

The plant is criticised for not following up on the results of safety work and for not having routines governing how safety inspections should be carried out. The report also says that there is no clear description of the responsibilities of those who investigate incidents at the Forsmark.

The power station's owners, Forsmarks Kraftfrupp AB, has been given until the end of the year to resolve the problems.

Forsmark has previously been the subject of safety concerns. It was criticised last year by SSM after it was revealed that an emergency cooling system vent had been shut for a year. Inspectors said the incident cast doubts about the safety culture at the plant.
