REGDOC-2.2.3, Personnel Certification: Radiation Safety Officers sets out guidance to assist applicants in completing an application for certification as a Radiation Safety Officer (RSO) pursuant to the Class II Nuclear Facilities and Prescribed Equipment Regulations.

This document is based on the Nuclear Safety and Control Act (NSCA) and its regulations, which are administered by the CNSC. The document provides detailed information about the completion of an application and the process for the RSO certification. The document explains what is needed in an application form, in order to assess if the applicant has the qualifications necessary to be certified as a RSO.
