Document History of REGDOC-2.14.1, Volume I, Information Incorporated by Reference in Canada's Packaging and Transport of Nuclear Substances Regulations, 2015
Canada’s Packaging and Transport of Nuclear Substances Regulations, 2015 (PTNSR 2015) provide requirements for licences to transport nuclear substances. The regulations also include requirements for the design and certification of packages, special form radioactive material and other prescribed equipment. These regulatory requirements apply to all persons – including nuclear facilities and CNSC licensees and applicants – who transport nuclear substances or offer them for transport.
The PTNSR 2015 are based on the International Atomic Energy Agency’s Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material (IAEA Regulations). Canada follows the IAEA Regulations, which assure consistent, safe practices internationally. The PTNSR 2015 introduce an ambulatory reference to the IAEA Regulations and no longer explicitly identify and list relevant paragraphs from them. This change ensures that Canadian regulations will continue to align with international regulations, if international regulations are modified.
To help the regulated community comply with the PTNSR 2015, REGDOC-2.14.1 links provisions in the regulations to relevant content in the IAEA Regulations, the Nuclear Safety and Control Act, other CNSC regulations, and other related information.
Version 2 includes administrative updates so that references to IAEA SSR-6, Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material, reflect the 2018 edition.
