CNSC request to Centre de santé et de services sociaux de Beauce
On June 6, 2012, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) announced that a request had been issued, under subsection 12 (2) of the General Nuclear Safety and Control Regulations, to the Centre de santé et de services sociaux de Beauce (CSSSB), a health care provider located in St-Georges-de-Beauce, Quebec.

The CSSSB is required to:
- conduct a complete review of all safety programs (including the radiation safety program)
- provide a detailed written plan of the corrective actions that must be taken to address all identified deficiencies
- ensure, to the satisfaction of CNSC staff, that the radiation safety officer (RSO) has sufficient time and resources to meet regulatory obligations
- ensure that the implementation of the radiation protection program is adequate and complies with regulatory requirements
- put adequate measures in place to meet its continuing regulatory obligations
