CNSC publishes its Regulatory Framework Plan 2016-21, outlining plans for the coming year

News Release

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has posted its Regulatory Framework Plan 2016-2021, which sets out the regulations and regulatory documents that the CNSC plans to develop or amend. Documents are reviewed at least every five years. After review, the CNSC decides if they are still appropriate, or need to be updated.

Aligned with CNSC's corporate priorities, the plan considers current developments in the nuclear environment.

The CNSC's regulatory framework consists of laws passed by the Parliament of Canada that govern the regulation of Canada's nuclear industry, and regulations, licences and documents that the CNSC uses to regulate the industry.

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