RD-99.1 provides operating nuclear power plant licensees with the reporting requirements for events. The licensee will need to submit reports to the CNSC for the occurrence of reportable events. The events are graded based on safety significance, and the report is submitted accordingly. RD-99.1 contains the reporting requirements that supplement those found in the Nuclear Safety and Control Act or the regulations.
The RD-99.1 document will replace the current regulatory standard S-99, Reporting Requirements for Operating Nuclear Power Plants, March 2003.
Guidance document GD-99.1 Guide to the Reporting Requirements for Nuclear Power Plants has also been developed and will be published at the same time as RD-99.1. It provides supplementary materials, including examples of good practices, instructions, and reference tables. Applicable templates and forms are available on the CNSC Web site.
