The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) is asking the public to provide their comments on discussion paper DIS-13-02, Proposed Amendments to Regulations Made Under the Nuclear Safety and Control Act.

The discussion paper seeks feedback from licensees, the Canadian public and other interested stakeholders on the CNSC’s proposal to amend several regulations, including the Class I Nuclear Facilities Regulations, the Class II Nuclear Facilities and Prescribed Equipment Regulations, the General Nuclear Safety and Control Regulations, the Nuclear Substances and Radiation Devices Regulations, and the Uranium Mines and Mills Regulations, as well as the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission Rules of Procedure.

These amendments are proposed in part to respond to recommendations made by the CNSC Fukushima Task Force, while other changes are proposed to help further strengthen and clarify the CNSC's regulatory framework.


The What We Heard Report has been published.
