In response to the Fukushima Nuclear Emergency and the subsequent EOC response, the CNSC Fukushima Task Force recommended that hardcopy and e-version reference packages for all Canadian reactor sites be readily available. CSNC staff, in a cooperative agreement with AECL, has begun implementing this recommendation through the development of the NPP Accident Handbook. The NPP Accident Handbook will provide quick ready reference material for technical staff involved in EOC operations. The NPP Accident Handbook will allow technical staff to find site specific and accident specific details that will allow them to provide expert advice to the EOC team.
