Most changes in version 2 of REGDOC-2.10.1 are in reference to REGDOC-2.3.2 as version 2. View the October 2014 News Release for more information.

Nuclear Emergency Preparedness and Response sets out the emergency preparedness requirements and guidance of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) related to the development of emergency measure for licensees and licence applicants of Class I nuclear facilities and uranium mines and mills.
