March 9, 2017, – Ottawa, ON – Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) is asking the public to provide comments on draft REGDOC-2.13.1, Safeguards and Nuclear Material Accountancy.

A request for information (RFI) document, which outlines the regulatory objectives and approach, is also included. The public is asked to provide clear and specific feedback to help the CNSC refine or revisit initial assumptions and objectives.

To review and comment on the regulatory document and the RFI, visit the REGDOC-2.13.1 Web page.  Please submit your feedback by May 8, 2017. Comments submitted, including names and affiliations, will be made public.

REGDOC-2.13.1, Safeguards and Nuclear Material Accountancy, sets out requirements and guidance for safeguards programs for applicants and licensees who possess nuclear material, carry out specified types of nuclear fuel-cycle related research and development work, or carry out specified types of nuclear-related manufacturing activities.

REGDOC-2.13.1 aims to establish a common understanding of the information, access and support licensees are to provide to the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission and to the International Atomic Energy Agency, to facilitate Canadian compliance with safeguards agreements, and with licensee obligations established in the General Nuclear Safety and Control Regulations.

When consultation is complete, the published document will supersede:

  •  RD-336, Accounting and Reporting of Nuclear Material
  •  GD-336, Guidance for Accounting and Reporting of Nuclear Material

The CNSC regulates the use of nuclear energy and materials to protect the health, safety and security of Canadians 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.
