Canadian regulator signs cooperation agreements

17 September 2015

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has signed international arrangements to cooperate and exchange nuclear regulatory information with India's Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB), Japan's Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) and the Swiss Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate (ENSI).

The arrangements were signed during the 59th regular session of the International Atomic Energy Agency's General Conference, an annual meeting held in Vienna, Austria from September 14 to 18, 2015.

The agreements with the Indian, Japanese and Swiss regualtors were announced or negotiated prior to the general conferences

In addition, the CNSC agreed with France's Institute for Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety to extend, for another five years, the bilateral memorandum of understanding for cooperation and exchange of information on nuclear regulatory matters.

"These types of arrangements with our CNSC regulatory counterparts are valuable," said CNSC president Michael Binder. "They enable us to exchange information, experience and best practices, and to enhance training."
