“Even when I’m helping to represent Canada at an international conference like the Waste Management Symposia, I’m still always looking for opportunities to advance our work at home” says Laurie Swami, President and CEO of the Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO).
Ms. Swami and Rumina Velshi, President and CEO of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC), met early in the morning on the first day of the symposia and signed a service agreement recommitting to a positive and constructive working relationship between their two organizations.
“This agreement underscores the importance of involving the regulator early” Ms. Swami continued. “The CNSC regulates the use of nuclear energy and materials to protect the health, safety and security of the public and the environment. Together, we can ensure that the best science, technology and information is applied to Canada’s plan for the safe, long-term management of our country’s used nuclear fuel.”
