Canada Extends Comment Period on Nuclear Emergency Recovery Document

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission wants feedback on a newly proposed regulatory document that is a framework for establishing a recovery plan in the event of a nuclear emergency in Canada.

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission last week extended the comment period for stakeholders to provide comments on its discussion paper DIS-17-01, Framework for Recovery in the Event of a Nuclear or Radiological Emergency, with a new deadline of Jan. 27, 2018. The agency wants feedback on a newly proposed regulatory document that is a framework for establishing a recovery plan in the event of a nuclear emergency in Canada; the proposed document would complement the existing REGDOC-2.10.1, Nuclear Emergency Preparedness and Response.

CNSC said it's important that stakeholders have adequate time to analyze the proposals and assess the potential impact on their operations, which is why it decided to extend the deadline.

For more information and to submit a comment, visit this online page. Comments submitted, including names and affiliations, will be made public. CNSC later will publish a What We Heard Report to explain how it will move forward, taking into account the comments received.

CNSC regulates the use of nuclear energy and materials to protect the health, safety, security and the environment; to implement Canada’s international commitments on the peaceful use of nuclear energy; and to disseminate objective scientific, technical and regulatory information to the public.
