SERVICE AND CONVENIENCE
Many organizations use radioactive materials as an incidental part of doing business
and cannot afford to devote a full-time employee to the regulatory affairs associated with
the CNSC. Noremtech will endeavour to ensure your organization's radiation safety and
regulatory compliance so that you can get on with the business you were meant to be in.
Disposal of Radioisotopes
If you have radioisotopes or old nuclear gauges you would like to get rid of, Noremtech
will endeavour to ease the paper burden associated with shipping and disposing of this
material. We have CNSC licenses for both Storage of radioisotopes and for Installation,
Dismounting and Dismantling nuclear gauges.
Assistance with filling out complicated licence applications. The CNSC has moved to
issuing licence application guides for fixed gauges, and may soon issue similar guides for
other types of licenses.
