The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) joins the SITEX.Network being the first overseas member in our association.  As Canada’s nuclear regulator, the CNSC regulates the use of nuclear energy and materials to protect health, safety, security and the environment; to implement Canada’s international commitments on the peaceful use of nuclear energy; and to disseminate objective scientific, technical and regulatory information to the public.

The CNSC joins the SITEX.Network as it is an established network that encourages cooperation between regulators, technical support organizations and civil society organizations in the field of safety of radioactive waste management. The network aligns with the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission’s strategic priority of being a trusted regulator through stakeholder engagement, communications and transparency.

The application has been signed by Rumina Velshi, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, and confirmed by the SITEX.Network Management Board looking forward to a fruitful cooperation within the network.
