Public invited to comment on draft annex to REGDOC-2.2.2, Personnel Training

News Release

April 12, 2016 – Ottawa, ON

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) is asking the public to provide their comments on draft Annex A, Additional Guidance for Using REGDOC-2.2.2, Personnel Training, to develop radiation safety training programs.

REGDOC-2.2.2 is part of the CNSC’s regulatory framework series on human performance management. The annex provides guidance for developing and implementing systematic training programs as required by this regulatory document, and helps licensees of nuclear substances and radiation devices, and Class II nuclear facilities and prescribed equipment develop radiation safety training programs. It also includes high-level process diagrams and supporting descriptions to guide licensees through the systematic approach to training presented in section 5 of REGDOC-2.2.2. The annex does not introduce any new requirements on licensees.

A request for information (RFI) – which outlines the regulatory objectives and approach, as well as the estimated impacts on stakeholders specific to this document – 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 annex and RFI, visit the REGDOC-2.2.2, Personnel Training Web page. Please submit your feedback by May 12, 2016. For this consultation round, the CNSC seeks comments on Annex A only. Any comments on other sections of REGDOC-2.2.2 will be held until the document is formally reviewed again.

The consultation process is a public process and, unless you specify otherwise, your comments, including names and affiliations, will be disclosed publicly.

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.
