Summary

REGDOC-1.5.1 is intended to help applicants to prepare and submit applications to the CNSC for certification of radiation devices and Class II prescribed equipment. It assists applicants and licensees in complying with the Nuclear Safety and Control Act and regulations and ensures that:

  • the radiation device or Class II prescribed equipment is safe to use
  • adequate measures are in place to protect the environment, the health and safety of persons, and national security
  • the design meets Canada’s international obligations

Minor changes to the structure of the guide have been made and guidance has been added to make it easier to fill in the application form and to clarify what information is to be included, thereby reducing potential delays during the certification process.

This document supersedes RD/GD-254, Licence Application Guide: Certification of Radiation Devices or Class II Prescribed Equipment, published in December 2010.

Version 1.1 includes administrative updates so that references to the International Atomic Energy Agency’s SSR-6, Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material, reflect the 2018 edition.
