Canadian facilities cleared for operation

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has granted ten-year licence renewals for Cameco’s uranium refinery at Blind River and its fuel manufacturing plant at Port Hope. Both licences will be valid from 1 March 2012 to 28 February 2022. The Port Hope conversion plant has been granted a five-year licence renewal, with its new licence valid from 1 March 2012 to 28 February 2017.
CNSC made its decisions on all three renewals following public hearings held in November 2011 and January 2012, where it received and considered submissions from Cameco and other intervenors as well as recommendations from CNSC staff. The CNSC has directed Cameco to prepare various status reports on safety and performance as well as compliance activities at stipulated points during the licence period for all three facilities.
