Order issued to International Paper Canada Pulp Holdings ULC
The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has issued an order to International Paper Canada Pulp Holdings ULC, a company based in Calgary, Alberta. The company currently holds a CNSC licence authorizing the possession, transfer, import, use and storage of fixed nuclear gauges.
The order was issued following a CNSC inspection at the licensee’s Grande Prairie facility. The inspection identified non-compliances with regard to vessel entry. The inspection also identified non-compliances with worker training and record keeping.
The order requires the licensee to cease all vessel entries until such time as it can demonstrate to the satisfaction of the CNSC that a system consistent with submitted procedures and CNSC requirements is implemented to maintain records of all vessel entries, and that workers who perform vessel entries are trained on the associated procedures and record-keeping requirements.
The CNSC requires these measures to protect the health and safety of workers, the public and the environment.
