Regulations Amending Certain Regulations Made Under the Nuclear Safety and Control Act (Imports, Exports and Safeguards)

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) is proposing to update the General Nuclear Safety and Control Regulations (GNSCR) to add requirements related to safeguards. Specifically, the proposed changes would introduce new requirements for any person either possessing small amounts of nuclear material or engaged in nuclear fuel cycle-related research and development and/or in nuclear-related manufacturing activities. The proposed amendments would also include lifting the need to present a licence at the border when exporting or importing prescribed information.

The CNSC is also proposing to update the Nuclear Non-proliferation Import and Export Control Regulations (NNIECR) to include the latest revisions to international control lists, introduce new licence exemptions, enhance licensing information and harmonize record retention periods.
