Site evaluation and site preparation for new reactor facilities.: CC172-196/2022E-1-PDF

"This regulatory document provides requirements and guidance for site evaluation and site preparation for new reactor facilities. It also includes a licence application guide for a licence to prepare a site for new reactor facilities. Site evaluation is integral to applications for licences to prepare a site to construct a nuclear facility, to operate and to decommission. The site characterization information obtained during site evaluation is taken into account in the design of the reactor facility and reevaluated during site preparation and over the lifecycle of the reactor facility (that is, construction, operation and decommissioning), including the periodic safety reviews and updates to the environmental risk assessment"--Purpose, page 1.
