The licensing basis sets the boundary conditions for a regulated activity, and establishes the basis for the CNSC’s compliance program for that regulated activity. The concept of the licensing basis is explained in REGDOC‑3.5.3, Regulatory Fundamentals .
The applicant shall notify CNSC staff of any conflicts between elements of the licensing basis for the proposed licence (for example, conflicts between provincial and federal legislation).
CNSC staff will review both the application and the supporting documentation, and assess whether the information is acceptable. If the Commission issues a licence, the information describing the safety and control measures will form part of the licensing basis.
