This course on the operating licence for power reactors in Canada is intended to assist persons working in the field of regulatory affairs. At the end of the course, participants will be familiar with the structure of an operating licence. They will be able to determine which activities are authorized by the licence and which are not. They will know the origin of each condition in the licence and its current interpretation. They will be able to advise personnel working at their site whether past or proposed actions are permitted by or violate the licence. They will be able to advise on how to apply for permission for activities not authorized by the licence. Numerous exercises are used in the course.
The operating licence for Pickering A, PROL 04.00/2015, is used as an example throughout the course as it was most recently updated by the CNSC and will become the model for all other operating licences. The structure and format of operating licences is standardized in Canada, as are the conditions. This course will be useful to anyone in Canada who administers a power reactor operating licence.
COG has developed a series of Regulatory Affairs training courses. It is recommended that candidates should take the RA training courses in the following order:
1. Nuclear Safety and Control Act. The Act is the legal basis for the Regulations and licences; therefore, this course should be taken first (1 day).
2. Nuclear Safety and Control Regulations. Operating licences are issued pursuant to the Nuclear Safety and Control Act and the Regulations. Therefore, it is appropriate to study the Regulations before taking the course, The Operating Licence. (3 days)
3. The Operating Licence. A condition in the operating licence requires reporting in accordance with S-99. Therefore, the course on the operating licence is a logical prerequisite for the course on reporting. (3 days)
4. Reporting Requirements for Operating Nuclear Power Plants, S-99. (2 days)
5. Regulatory Issues Management. The examples and exercises used in these courses often require knowledge acquired in the first three courses. (2 days)
The COG Regulatory Affairs training program is funded by OPG, BP, NB Power and CNL. The above training courses are only available to the above funding members.
