Regulatory Oversight Report for Canadian Nuclear Power Generating Sites

Previously, the CNSC published annually a regulatory oversight report (ROR) on the safety performance of Canada's nuclear power plants (NPPs). These RORs can be found below.

In 2018, for the first time, the CNSC assessed the safety performance not only of Canada’s nuclear NPPs, but also of adjacent waste management facilities (WMFs) in 2017. The results are published in the Regulatory Oversight Report for Canadian Nuclear Power Generating Sites: 2017.

The report assesses how well licensees are meeting regulatory requirements and program expectations in areas such as human performance, radiation and environmental protection, and emergency management and fire protection.

Showing comparisons and trends where possible, the report highlight emerging regulatory issues pertaining to the industry at large and to each licensed station.
