Chalk River license is renewed for five more years

The first is the great news that CNSC has approved AECL's application to renew the operating license for the Chalk River Laboratories Site for a period of 5 years.

and Decision:
"While in principle the decision allows for an extension to the life of NRU, operation remains contingent on the results of licensed safety requirements, one such being a reactor vessel inspection report CNSC expects to receive from AECL by February 2012." from
"I am extremely pleased that the Commission has renewed the Chalk River operating licence for five years," said Dr. Robert Walker, AECL President and Chief Executive Officer. "This license is vital to enabling AECL to deliver value to Canadians and the world as Canada’s premier nuclear Science and Technology organization.” from:
