Administrative Burden Baseline: Update 2017
The Administrative Burden Baseline provides Canadians with a clear metric on the total number of requirements in federal regulations and associated forms that impose administrative burden on business. This baseline contributes to the openness and transparency of the federal regulatory system.
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 in the table below. The total baseline count as of June 30, 2014, was 8,169. Between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2017, the CNSC's total count of administrative requirements did not change. As a result, the June 30, 2017 updated count is the same as the June 30, 2014 baseline count.
