Administrative Burden Baseline (2014)
In its Red Tape Reduction Action Plan, the Government committed to build on the efforts of the Paperwork Burden Reduction Initiative by requiring departments, through the Administrative Burden Baseline, to provide a count of the requirements in federal regulations.
While regulating the nuclear industry, the CNSC imposes requirements on licensees and licence applicants to ensure the health, safety and security of Canadians and the environment. The CNSC will never compromise safety.
All CNSC-administered federal regulations with requirements on business are identified below. The total count for the year 2014 is 8169.
