In this collection, you will find standards primarily for CANDU nuclear power plants. Some of the standards are provided so that they can be considered for application to other types of nuclear facilities, such as research reactors, radioisotope-processing facilities, and others. The suite of standards covers the life cycle phases of the power plants, and covers subjects such as environmental radiation management; radioactive waste management; management systems; seismic requirements.
Used in the following areas/industries:
Testing procedures, shut down systems, regulation, inspection, containment and management systems related to nuclear reactors and power plants, including CANDU nuclear power plants and uranium mines and mills, as well as environmental monitoring.
Ideal for the following roles:
Effluent and emissions monitoring programs at nuclear facilities
Consists of N290.0-17, General requirements for safety systems of nuclear power plants and CSA N290.3:22, Requirements for the containment system of nuclear power plants
Environmental risk assessments at nuclear facilities and uranium mines and mills
Deep geological disposal of radioactive waste and irradiated fuel
Environmental management of nuclear facilities: Common requirements of the CSA N288 series of Standards
Cyber security for nuclear facilities
Aging management requirements for nuclear power plants
Characterization of radioactive waste and irradiated fuel
Guidelines for modelling radionuclide environmental transport, fate, and exposure associated with the normal operation of nuclear facilities
Environmental monitoring programs at nuclear facilities and uranium mines and mills
