Regulatory Action - SPL Consultants
Under the Nuclear Safety and Control Act and associated regulations, various levels of regulatory action can be taken by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) to protect the health, safety and security of Canadians and the environment.
Order to SPL Consultants Limited
On May 10, 2010, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission issued an order to SPL Consultants Limited of Vaughan, Ontario, a geotechnical and environmental materials consulting company.
The order required the Company to cease the use of radiation devices licensed by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, and to immediately put the equipment into storage. The Company must demonstrate that adequate training has been provided to their staff, so that the radiation devices can be used safely and in compliance with regulatory requirements. The order was issued as a result of an inspection conducted on May 10, 2010, at the offices of the Company.
SPL Consultants Limited has since complied with the order.
