Safe and Secure Transportation of Canada's Used Nuclear Fuel (Poster)

This provides an overview of the transportation activities associated with Canada's plan to manage the used nuclear fuel that is created through electricity generation. The focus is on the transportation package that will help ensure the safe and secure transport of used nuclear fuel, both now and when it will be relocated to a deep geological repository. In Canada, the safe, secure movement of radioactive materials is jointly regulated by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) and Transport Canada. The Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) will need to demonstrate to regulatory authorities and citizens the safety and security of a transportation system before the shipments of used nuclear fuel can begin.
