Subject: Publication of REGDOC-2.12.2, Site Access Security Clearance
Following a period of public consultation from November 13, 2012 to January 13, 2013, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has published regulatory document REGDOC-2.12.2, Site Access Security Clearance (formerly known as draft GD-384, Site Access Security Clearance for High-Security Sites).
This document presents the CNSC’s expectations regarding the process for granting a site access security clearance (SASC) for authorized unescorted entry to a protected area.
The SASC process helps ensure that unescorted persons entering protected areas would not pose a risk to facilities, their operation or personnel.
Note: During consultation, this document was identified as GD-384, Site Access Security Clearance for High-Security Sites. The CNSC is modernizing the nomenclature for its regulatory documents, and this document is now identified as REGDOC-2.12.2, Site Access Security Clearance.
The CNSC regulates the use of nuclear energy and materials to protect the health, safety and security of Canadians and the environment, and to respect Canada’s international commitments on the peaceful use of nuclear energy.
