BEST-EVER REPORT CARD

Bruce Power’s independent regulator, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, gave Bruce Power its top report card in 2016.

Both Bruce A and B received an overall ‘Fully Satisfactory’ mark for the CNSC’s Integrated Plant Ratings, which the regulator has compared to an ‘A+’ in past media reports. Both stations were also deemed Fully Satisfactory for Operating Performance, Conventional Health and Safety, Waste Management and Security. The other 10 areas rated by the CNSC were deemed ‘Satisfactory,’ which is equivalent to an ‘A.’

Never one to rest on its laurels, Bruce Power will continue to strive to achieve Fully Satisfactory marks in all 16 categories annually rated by the CNSC.
