The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has released a new regulatory document, Regulatory Guide G-228, Developing and Using Action Levels.
The new guide describes how applicants for CNSC licences can develop action levels that provide for the radiation protection of workers and the public during the conduct of authorized activities. It takes into account the comments received on the draft version of the guide that the predecessor to the CNSC, the Atomic Energy Control Board, issued for public consultation purposes in November of 1999.
Regulatory Guide G-228, Developing and Using Action Levels, is available in English or French on the CNSC website (www.nuclearsafety.gc.ca). A paper copy of the document in either official language may be ordered from:
