Atomic Energy Authority

The Atomic Energy Authority (AEA) of Sri Lanka is a Statutory Body functioning under the Ministry of Technology, Research and Atomic Energy and was established by the Atomic Energy Authority Act No.19 of 1969.

Radiation and Radioisotope Technology which has a wide range of applications in many areas can make a significant contribution to the development of medical, agricultural, industrial, energy and environmental sectors in Sri Lanka. The Atomic Energy Authority (AEA) has the responsibility of facilitating the utilization of this technology in the above-mentioned sectors and ensuring that all uses of radiation and radioisotopes are carried out according to the internationally accepted safety standards.

We are the Atomic Energy Authority of Sri Lanka, the apex body …

  • On promotion of peaceful applications of nuclear technology contributing to socio-economic and environmental development in Sri Lanka.

  • Responsible for implementing regulatory programmes conforming to international standards on radiation safety and security to ensure protection of Sri Lankan community from unwarranted exposure to ionizing radiation.
  • Contributing to socio-economic and environmental development in Sri Lanka.

AEA Receives an Award

Chito-power, the new product developed by the Radiation Processing Section of the AEA, which was displayed at the “Sahasak Nimavum 2014” exhibition, has won an award and the group responsible in producing this product will be presented with the award at the “Nuga Sewana” hall of the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH) on 16th December  2014. This award will be presented by the Sri Lanka Inventors Commission.
Chito-Power developed by the Atomic Energy Authority (AEA), which is under the Ministry of Technology and Research, in collaboration with the Horticultural Research and development Centre (HORDI), Gannoruwa, under the Department of Agriculture, can be used as a natural plant growth promoter as well as elicitor with antimicrobial activity in agriculture applications.


A Presidential and NRC Awards for a Scientific Publication

Ms. M. C. S. Seneviratne of AEA has won a Presidential Award for her research publication titled “Characterization and source apportionment of particulate pollution in Colombo, Sri Lanka” which appeared in the research journal “ATMOSPHERIC POLLUTION RESEARCH 2011, Vol 2, Iss 2, pp 151-157”.

She was presented with the award by H.E. the President Mahinda Rajapaksa at Waters Edge on 31st October 2014.

At the same time a NRC Merit Award was presented to Mr. V.A. Waduge, Ms. L. Hadagiripathira, S. Sanjeewani and Ms. T. Attanayake who are the co authors of the project.   


NDT awareness Programme for Insurance Partners

altOne day workshop titled “NDT awareness programme for Insurance Partners” was held on 28th November 2014 at the National Centre for Non Destructive Testing (NCNDT), Kelaniya. It was the first workshop held at the NCNDT.
At present, use of boilers in Sri Lankan industry is increasing rapidly.  Due to the potential dangers associated with the use of boilers, periodical inspection of boilers is crucial to ensure safety. Non Destructive Testing technique plays one of the major roles in securing the boiler systems in the world. But in Sri Lankan industry it is not yet popular, mainly due to lack of awareness programmes, for Non Destructive Testing (NDT). As such it has been recognized that improving NDT awareness in insurance sector, is vital in popularizing NDT in Sri Lankan industry as routine boiler inspections are mandatory in insurance.


National Training Course on Non Destructive Testing Magnetic Particle Testing (MT) – Level 2


altThe National Center for Non-Destructive Testing (NCNDT) of the Atomic Energy Authority is pleased to inform that National training course on Magnetic Particle Testing (MT) - level 2, will be held from 16th to 24thDecember 2014 at the National Centre for Non Destructive Testing.
This 42 hour training course is aimed in providing participants with a comprehensive knowledge of theory and practical training on Magnetic Particle Testing to enable the participants to set up and calibrate test equipment and apply appropriate test procedures.


Half a day workshop on “Electron Beam Applications for value addition of Food and Industrial Products and Degradation of Environmental Pollutants in the Asia-Pacific region”


altRadiation Processing Section of the Atomic Energy Authority organized the aboveworkshop on 12th November2014 from 9.30 am – 12.30 pm at the AEA auditorium. The main objective of holding this workshop was to provide basic knowledge on Electron Beam (EB) technology in different fields to upgrade the quality of food and industrial products such as tire, wire and cable and to minimize environmental impact caused by flue gas and effluent released from the factories. There were 23 external participants who are in Managerial level from Government Sector and Private Sector along with 10 AEA officials. They mainly represented food, rubber, tire, agriculture and industrial sectors.
