The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has released its regulatory document, REGDOC-1.2.3, Licence Application Guide: Licence to Prepare Site for a Deep Geological Repository, for public consultation. REGDOC-1.2.3 is a licence application guide for obtaining a licence to prepare a site for a DGR.
The public consultation on REGDOC-1.2.3 is the opportunity for the CNSC to hear from Canadians about this document. If you're new to this topic, we've created a Consultation Backgrounder to help you understand the REGDOC.
The CNSC has posted REGDOC-1.2.3 for public consultation from February 22 to May 23, 2023.
Once the public consultation period closes, you will have a further opportunity to review all the comments we’ve received and provide more input during a feedback period, from May 24 to June 8, 2023.
After the feedback period is complete, the CNSC will review all the comments received and update the REGDOC accordingly. Finally, REGDOC-1.2.3 will be presented to the Commission at a public meeting.
