Abstract

In the last fifteen years or so there has been, within the Canadian nuclear industry, a significant amount of fuel safety criteria related activities. The primary objective of this presentation is to provide a regulatory perspective of those activities (I will try cover as many as time permits). A brief overview of the CNSC’s regulatory oversight activities will therefore be provided. Given that I am currently the Chair of an IAEA Working Group, whose mandate is to write a technical document (TECDOC) on fuel safety criteria used in countries where pressurized heavy water reactors are operated, I will conclude the presentation with a brief description of this IAEA project.
