View [HTML version of REGDOC-2.2.2, Version 2] [PDF version of REGDOC-2.2.2, Version 2]


REGDOC-2.2.2, Personnel Training, Version 2 was published in December 2016. While there will be no impact on any REGDOC-2.2.2 requirements, the update provides additional guidance for the creation of radiation safety training programs.

This document sets out the requirements and guidance for the analysis, design, development, implementation, evaluation, documentation and management of training at nuclear facilities within Canada, including the principles and elements essential to an effective training system.

Consistent with the CNSC regulatory philosophy and with international practice, licensees are responsible for the safe operation of their respective nuclear facilities. Consequently, licensees are responsible for training and assessing their workers to ensure that they are fully qualified to perform the duties of their positions, in accordance with regulatory requirements.

This document is part of the Human Performance Management series of the CNSC's regulatory framework, which also covers human performance and personnel certification.

REGDOC-2.2.2, Personnel Training, Version 2 supersedes:

  • REGDOC-2.2.2, Personnel Training (2014)
  • G-313, Radiation Safety Training Programs for Workers Involved in Licensed Activities with Nuclear Substances and Radiation Devices, and with Class II Nuclear Facilities and Prescribed Equipment (2006)
