June 29, 2015 – Ottawa
Following a public hearing, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) announced today its decision to renew SRB Technologies (Canada) Inc.’s nuclear substance processing facility operating licence. The licence will be valid from July 1, 2015 until June 30, 2022.
In making its decision, the Commission considered information presented at a May 14, 2015 public hearing in Pembroke, Ontario. During the public hearing, the Commission received and considered submissions from SRB Technologies (Canada) Inc. and 45 intervenors, as well as CNSC staff’s recommendations.
With this decision, the Commission directs CNSC staff to provide annual reporting on the performance of the SRB facility, as part of the CNSC’s Regulatory Oversight Report for the Canadian Uranium and Nuclear Substance Processing Facilities. CNSC staff shall present these reports at public Commission proceedings.
The Record of Proceedings, Including Reasons for Decision is available upon request to the Commission Secretariat. It will be available, in both official languages, on the CNSC website at a later date. Transcripts of the hearing are available on the CNSC website at nuclearsafety.gc.ca, or by contacting the CNSC. The webcast of the hearing is archived on the same site for a period of 90 days.
The CNSC regulates the use of nuclear energy and materials to protect health, safety, security and the environment, and 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.
