The accompanying dataset contains all transactions catalogued in the Sealed Source Tracking System for the 2017 calendar year. The SSTS is used in conjunction with the National Sealed Source Registry to track and report the movement of high- and very high-risk sealed sources within Canada. Sealed sources are radioactive nuclear substances that are encapsulated or bonded to a cover to prevent the loss of radioactive contents. Sealed sources are used in a variety of medical, industrial, commercial and academic and research applications.

An important part of reducing risk to CNSC employees is by clearly communicating with licensees about our expectations and the Government of Canada’s Workplace Harassment and Violence Prevention Regulations. We are taking a proactive stance against workplace harassment and violence by informing licensees that behaviours and actions that may cause harm or injury to CNSC employees will not be tolerated. Although no specific incidents with licensees have been reported under the new regulations, it is important that we share our expectations with all CNSC-regulated organizations.

As Canada’s nuclear regulator, the CNSC reviews the environmental protection measures put in place for every facility we regulate. The Environmental Protection Review report series offers a summary of CNSC staff’s technical assessment of how effectively licensees are protecting human health and the environment in the communities in which they are operating.

The purpose of the report is to share CNSC staff’s findings from the review of SRBT's environmental protection measures. This includes any possible environmental releases as part of normal operations, and the risk of radiological or hazardous substances posed to the environment and human health.

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC), formerly the Atomic Energy Control Board (AECB), has legislative control of nuclear fuel cycle materials and man-made radionuclides. However, naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) is exempt from CNSC jurisdiction except for the import, export and transport of the material. Therefore, jurisdiction over use and radiation exposure to NORM rests with each Canadian province and territory.
