Update to SSR Assignment Specifications within SEB003

During a recent Non-Statutory Inquiry (NSi) a recommendation was received to introduce a formal system of functional safety authorisation, delegation and accountability for hazardous material control in order to provide a clear line of responsibility and accountability for Statutory compliance below the ExCo. Hazardous Materials present a Risk to Life, to manage these it is considered a SSR responsibility to manage hazards associated with Hazardous Materials. The SSR Assignment Specifications within SEB003 have been updated to reflect this recommendation.
