On August 29, 2012, the CNSC announced that Jack Cewe Limited, a paving and construction company based out of Coquitlam, BC, had been notified of the refusal to renew their existing licence, which expires on August 31. The company’s licence authorizes the possession and storage of portable gauges containing nuclear substances.

Jack Cewe Limited may appeal to the Commission Tribunal but must transfer any radiation devices to an authorized CNSC licensee before the expiry of the current licence.

Order to Jack Cewe Ltd.
On July 6, 2012, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) announced that it had issued an order to Jack Cewe Ltd. on June 29, 2012.
Jack Cewe Ltd. is a company based in Coquitlam, British Columbia, that provides construction services. The company held a CNSC licence to possess nuclear substances contained in radiation devices for process control purposes. The licence expired on June 30, 2012.
The order was issued because the company failed to provide the CNSC with a complete application for the renewal of its expired licence. This failure resulted in the company being in possession of an unlicensed radiation device as of July 1, 2012. The order requires Jack Cewe Ltd. to immediately transfer its radiation device to an authorized, licensed recipient.
The transfer of the radiation device is required by the CNSC to protect the health and safety of the Canadian public and the environment.
