Summary

REGDOC-2.5.7, Design, Testing and Performance of Exposure Devices, provides guidance on the design, testing and performance of exposure devices, in order to apply for the certification of the radiation device under section 12 of the Nuclear Substances and Radiation Devices Regulations. This document supersedes RD/GD-352, Design, Testing and Performance of Exposure Devices, published in January 2012, and includes the following updated information:

  • new title
  • new cover and inside cover
  • updated references (where appropriate)
  • a sentence in the glossary pointing to REGDOC-3.6, Glossary of CNSC Terminology
