Disclaimer: CNSC licensees may use this worksheet voluntarily to ascertain the CNSC`s general expectations regarding regulatory requirements. Such requirements would generally be assessed during a Type I and Type II Inspection of licences issued pursuant to the Nuclear Substances and Radiation Devices Regulations. The expectations listed for each regulatory requirement are only provided as a guide. Similar worksheets will be used by CNSC staff for on-site inspections. Inspections, will, however, be carried out on a case-by-case basis in the context of the licensed activities and the circumstances of individual situations. This worksheet is not intended to limit the scope of CNSC inspections or the powers of CNSC inspectors. Licensees should contact the CNSC to obtain information regarding their specific licence requirements.
