Regulatory oversight – Approach to life extension of nuclear research reactors

Abstract of the technical paper/presentation presented at:
The European Nuclear Conference (ENC), 2012
December 9–12, 2012

Prepared by:

Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission


As nuclear power plants and large research and isotope production facilities age, licensees are applying for permission to extend the operation of such nuclear installations beyond their assumed design life. In such cases, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) currently requests that the licensee conduct an integrated safety review. This is to collect sufficient and necessary information to allow CNSC staff to make determinations and recommendations to support regulatory decisions on granting a licence for safe, reliable continued operation of such facilities
