The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has published REGDOC-3.4.1, Guide for Applicants and Intervenors Writing CNSC Commission Member Documents.. This document provides guidance for writing Commission member documents (CMDs) for submission to the CNSC. 

This document addresses the following aspects of writing an effective CMD:

•              guiding principles and points to remember

•              writing tips (such as principles of plain language, and the use of visual aids)
