The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission’s Nuclear Security Division Invites You to Participate in a Survey on Tracking Systems for Category 2 and 3 Radioactive Sources in Transport

13th February 2018

To ensure the ongoing safety and security of radioactive sources in Canada, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission’s Nuclear Security Division (NSD) is working on a research project to study the use of new tracking technologies for devices with radioactive sources and their potential to assist faster recovery of lost or stolen sources.

The objective is to study the applicability of new tracking technologies to the Canadian environment, including the costs, benefits and challenges for sources used in industrial radiography and well-logging applications and to look at current international regulatory practices related to tracking technologies.

As part of this research, NSD is sending a survey out to Canadian licensees and their international counterparts, including the IAEA, regulators, WINS members and other relevant stakeholders. The purpose of the survey is to gather information on stakeholders’ use of tracking systems and associated technologies for Category 2 and 3 radioactive sources in transport, specifically those used in industrial radiography and well-logging.

NSD welcomes your participation in this survey! (The seventeen questions should take you no longer than 10 minutes to complete.) To get started, simply click on one of the following links:

NSD would appreciate receiving your answers before March 11, 2018.
