The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) is asking the public to provide comments on discussion paper DIS-16-05, Human Performance.

As a responsible regulator, the CNSC is committed to continuous improvement and is seeking to further clarify its approach to regulating human performance. This discussion paper seeks early feedback from stakeholders on the opportunities presented to improve the CNSC’s regulatory framework for human performance. As the CNSC proceeds with any changes to regulatory documents, stakeholders will have additional opportunities for consultation on specific proposals. By consulting early, the CNSC is seeking to establish a common understanding of certain concepts, to validate the need for improvements in various areas of the framework, and to understand stakeholder views on preliminary proposals or issues.


March 15, 2017: The invitation to provide feedback on comments received during consultation is open until April 5, 2017.
