Summary

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) invites the public to provide feedback on comments received for discussion paper DIS-16-01, How the CNSC Considers Information on Costs and Benefits: Opportunities to Improve Guidance and Clarity.

The discussion paper provides an overview of the CNSC’s current policy on cost-benefit information and describes several examples of how the CNSC has considered cost-benefit information in the past. The paper then proposes new guidance aimed at stakeholders who may wish to submit cost benefit information to the CNSC in the future. The guidance is intended to help ensure information submitted to the CNSC is high quality and fit for purpose. Feedback will further inform how the CNSC may update its policy and integrate it into a new regulatory document in the modernized 3.5 series of the CNSC’s regulatory framework.
