This discussion paper is intended to seek feedback from licensees, the Canadian public and other stakeholders on proposed amendments to the Nuclear Non-proliferation Import and Export Control Regulations, along with a related change to the General Nuclear Safety and Control Regulations. This pre-consultation process will feed into the formal consultation process during which the proposed amendments will be published in the Canada Gazette, Part I for further public comment.
To review and comment on the document, visit the DIS-15-01 Web page. Discussion paper DIS-15-01 will be available for consultation for a period of 120 days. Please submit your feedback by July 2, 2015. Comments submitted, including names and affiliations, are intended to be made public.
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.
