The article provides insights on strategy, planning and costing for nuclear power plant decommissioning in Canada. The Atomic Energy Control Board (AECB) regulates the nuclear industry in the country. Decommissioning plans were required to be submitted by owner at various stages of the life cycle of the nuclear facility under a regulatory document issued by the AECB in 1988. The Ontario Energy Board reviews the cost estimates, economic factors, decommissioning technology and reference plan annually.
