The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) is asking the public to provide their comments on discussion paper DIS-16-03, Radioactive Waste Management and Decommissioning.

As a responsible regulator, the CNSC is committed to continuous improvement and seeks to further clarify its framework for regulating waste and decommissioning. This discussion paper seeks stakeholder feedback on proposals to update and clarify the CNSC’s waste regulatory framework. Comments are being sought on opportunities to incorporate Canadian and international best practices and to update CNSC documents with more modern terminology. In addition, the CNSC is seeking to improve clarity and predictability for applicants and other stakeholders by clearly indicating the information that licence applicants are expected to submit.
