On April 28, 2010, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) is hosting an Open House for members of the public and stakeholders on the results of its Tritium Studies Project.
In January 2007, the Commission Tribunal directed CNSC staff to initiate research studies on tritium releases in Canada. In response, staff initiated the Tritium Studies Project with several information gathering and research activities extending to 2010. The objective of this major research project is to enhance the information used in the regulatory oversight of tritium processing and tritium releases in Canada.
Four of the reports are currently completed and posted on our Web site:
• Tritium Drinking Water Standards and Guidelines
• Tritium Releases and Dose Consequences in Canada in 2006
• Investigation of the Environmental Fate of Tritium in the Atmosphere
• Evaluation of Facilities Handling Tritium
The remaining reports are being finalized. The results of all these studies and related recommendations will be presented to the Commission in June 2010.
The Open House will be an opportunity to come and hear a presentation on the health effects of tritium, read study posters, and ask questions of staff on the reports.
