Administrative Monetary Penalties Regulations

Administrative Monetary Penalties Regulations were published in the Canada Gazette, Part II

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) announced today that new Administrative Monetary Penalties Regulations were published in the Canada Gazette, Part II, on July 3, 2013.

 

The regulations, which come into force on July 3, 2013, were initiated as part of the Government of Canada’s Responsible Resource Development plan.

They provide the CNSC with an additional enforcement tool that will be used to strengthen environmental protection and to increase compliance with the Nuclear Safety and Control Act and its Regulations.

 

“Administrative monetary penalties are a new tool in our regulatory enforcement toolkit. They join tools like written notices and orders already in place to ensure compliance, and to keep Canadians and the environment safe,” said CNSC President and CEO Michael Binder.
