Industrial radiographers use nuclear tools to create images of materials, typically for the purposes of inspection. It is a form of non-destructive testing. Workers must be certified, or be a trainee under constant supervision of a certified operator, in order to use an exposure device. The Canadian Nuclear Safety Committee (CNSC), along with the Canadian Standards Association (CSA), are currently working to review, update, and revise the national certification program for exposure device operators (EDO). An update on the revision process was given at a meeting between the CNSC and the industrial radiography industry on May 7 in Leduc, Alberta. A second meeting of the same nature is being held in Ottawa, Ontario on May 22. For more information or to register for this meeting, please contact Michele Armitage at 613-993-7973 or at michele.armitage@cnsc-ccsn.gc.ca. Registrations will be taken up until Friday, May 17. Additional information on EDO certification and the certification review is available on the CNSC website and the CSA website.
