Technical papers, presentations and articles

Experts at the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) are often requested to present technical papers and presentations about the nuclear industry at conferences, seminars, technical meetings and workshops in Canada and around the world. Also, these experts write technical articles that are published in various journals.

CNSC experts also contribute to the development of research projects. Abstracts and the final research reports are available under the CNSC Research and Support Program.

Below is a listing of abstracts for published papers, presentations and journal articles.

To obtain a copy of the document that is related to an abstract, contact the CNSC. When contacting the CNSC, please provide the title and date of the abstract.
