Reports on Lost or Stolen Sealed Sources and Radiation Devices
The CNSC Report on Lost or Stolen Sealed Sources and Radiation Devices summarizes the information reported to the CNSC about the losses and thefts of licensable sealed sources and radiation devices.
The Nuclear Safety and Control Act, its Regulations and licence conditions require licensees to report these occurrences. Events are added and records are updated as new information is received. The losses and thefts in this report also include events that occur during transport in Canada.
This report provides a description for each event, the date the event occurred, the event location, the risk categorization, a brief summary and the recovery status. The risk categorization of the sealed source at the time of the event (Category 1 to Category 5) is based on the International Atomic Energy Agency document entitled Categorization of Radiation Sources.
