Document description

This discussion paper sets out a proposed methodology to establish in a consistent manner limits and action levels on environmental releases at Class I nuclear facilities, uranium mines and mills and nuclear waste management facilities to ensure the protection of the environment and health and safety of Canadians. The objective is to establish limits which minimize the overall quantity and concentration of contaminants released to the environment to ensure that the Canadian Environmental Protection Act principles of pollution prevention and the Nuclear Safety and Control Act principle of adequate precaution to control releases are being respected.
