Document History of REGDOC-2.2.3, Personnel Certification: Radiation Safety Officers
REGDOC-2.2.3, Personnel Certification: Radiation Safety Officers sets out guidance to assist applicants in completing an application for certification as a Radiation Safety Officer (RSO) pursuant to the Class II Nuclear Facilities and Prescribed Equipment Regulations.
This document is based on the Nuclear Safety and Control Act (NSCA) and its regulations, which are administered by the CNSC. The document provides detailed information about the completion of an application and the process for the RSO certification. The document explains what is needed in an application form, in order to assess if the applicant has the qualifications necessary to be certified as a RSO. The information submitted will also help the CNSC plan and conduct the certification examination. Any information which is submitted may subsequently be referred to in the RSO certificate. It then becomes a requirement of the certificate, and is thus legally binding.
While the use of the application form is not a specific requirement for certification, it is intended to assist applicants in submitting complete and structured information to the CNSC, so that the request can be processed as quickly as possible. The application form is available at nuclearsafety.gc.ca.
