Order issued to The Graff Company ULC

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has issued an order to The Graff Company ULC, a company based in Mississauga, Ontario. The company currently holds a CNSC licence authorizing the possession, transfer, use and storage of nuclear substances contained in industrial radiography exposure devices, for the purpose of materials testing.

The order was issued following a CNSC inspection at the licensee’s Mississauga facility. The inspection identified non-compliances with management oversight of the radiation protection program. Additionally, non-compliances with regard to prescribed records and adherence to operating procedures by workers were identified.

The order requires the licensee to cease all use and/or transport of radiation devices until it can demonstrate, to the CNSC’s satisfaction, that there are effective management controls over the radiation protection program and that all non-compliances identified in the inspection report have been corrected.

The CNSC requires these measures to protect the health and safety of workers, the public and the environment.
