Canadian nuclear regulators commended

On December 9th the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) completed its follow-up assessment of Canada’s nuclear regulatory framework. Among other observations, the Integrated Regulatory Review Service (IRRS) mission concluded that the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission’s (CNSC) actions in response to the March 2011 events at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station were prompt, robust and comprehensive, and was identified as a good practice that should be used by other regulatory bodies.
The 16-member peer review team, comprised of senior regulators and IAEA staff from 8 member states and countries, spent two weeks evaluating the CNSC’s implementation of the action plan from the June 2009 Integrated Regulatory Review Service (IRRS) Peer Review, assessing the CNSC’s response to the spring 2011 events at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station and assessing the CNSC’s regulatory practices related to packaging and transport of nuclear substances.
