Order issued to AM Inspection Ltd.

Today, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) announced that it issued an order on November 3, 2016 to AM Inspection Limited, a company based in Cabri, SK that provides testing services to the industrial sector. The company currently holds a CNSC licence authorizing the possession and use of nuclear substances contained in industrial radiography exposure devices, for the purpose of materials testing.

The order was issued following a CNSC inspection at the company’s Grande Prairie, Alberta location. The inspection identified non-compliances in regards to the supervision of a trainee. The inspection also identified non-compliances in the areas of worker training and record keeping.

The order requires the licensee to prohibit the individual identified in the Order from supervising trainees. It also prohibits the trainee from performing any work related to industrial radiography until such time that it can be demonstrated to the satisfaction of the CNSC that both workers are trained and do not pose a risk to health and safety of themselves or others.

On December 23, 2016, the CNSC confirmed that AM Inspection Limited had complied with all the terms and conditions of the order issued on November 3, 2016. The corrective measures implemented by the company were reviewed and found to be satisfactory by CNSC staff.
