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.

Opening of the National Centre for Non Destructive Testing (NCNDT)

altThe National Centre for Non Destructive Testing (NCNDT) was declared open by the Minister of Economic Development Honouralble Basil Rajapakse on the invitation of the Minister of Technology and Research Hon. Patali Champika Ranawaka on 14th October 2014.
This centre will cater for the development in all most all the industries in the country (petrochemical, boiler and pressure vessels, construction etc.) which are using machinery and steel fabrications. The critical areas of these machinery and steel fabrications such as engine components, pressure vessels, boilers, pipe lines, tubes etc. have to be tested periodically for their safety and quality. In addition there are several large and medium scale projects using steel fabrications such as high roof buildings, oil tanks, boilers, planes, ships, etc. These also have to be checked for quality.


Regional Training Course

altThe Regional Training Course on “Applications of Stable Isotope and Trace Element Analysis for Food Traceability : Multivariate Statistics and Use of On-Line Toolbox" was held in Colombo, organized and hosted by the Atomic Energy Authority in collaboration with the IAEA, under the Project RAS/5/062, from 13th to 24th October 2014.
At the opening ceremony, addressing the gathering Mr. D.G.L.Wickramanayake, Director General of the AEA, said he wish to  welcome all those present, including 27 foreign participants representing 17 Member States, IAEA staff members, local participant and observers.
On behalf of the Government of Sri Lanka and in particular, the Atomic Energy Authority, Mr.Wickramanayake expressed his sincere appreciation to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) for giving the opportunity to host the Regional training course on Multivariate statistics and use of on-line toolbox under the activities of RAS/5/062: Building Technological Capability for Food Traceability and Food Safety Control Systems Through the Use of Nuclear Analytical Techniques.


The House –Warming Ceremony of the National Centre for Non Destructive Testing

altThe House - Warming Ceremony of the National Centre for Non-Destructive Testing ( NCNDT) was held on 6th October 2014 with the chanting of Seth Pirith by Maha Sanga at the  auspicious time which occurred at about 11.45 am.

It was a soft opening and staff members including the Chairman participated at the simple ceremony.

The grand opening will be held on 14th October 2014 with the participation of Ministers, diplomats and AEA staff members.



Worldwide PROFICIENCY TESTING (PT) for the nuclear analytical materials in our laboratories is important to assure competence and acceptance of the results. It also assists to enhance the reliability and comparability of measurements obtained by nuclear analytical techniques through the organized   IAEA  PT/ inter-comparisons.

The AEA participated in the PT   schemes for determination   of radionuclides in various samples using Gamma spectrometry and for Major, Minor and Trace Elements using X-ray fluorescence (XRF) techniques under the IAEA-AQCS and Malaysian Nuclear Agency programs.


Preparedness of Health Sector for Radiation Emergencies

As a result of the collaboration of Atomic Energy Authority (AEA) and the Ministry of Health (MOH) on the Preparedness for Radiological Emergencies, MOH conducted a one day training programme for the Hospital staff on ‘Basic Hospital Preparedness for Radiation Emergencies’.

This programme was held in 15th of September 2014 at the Auditorium of Family Health Bureau, Colombo 10. The purpose of the programme is aware the medical personnel on the management of accidental radiation injuries and giving health advices to the public during a radiological emergency situation. This programme focused the doctors, nurses and physicists in purposely located hospitals in the country.


Training Course for Government Radiographers

Atomic Energy Authority (AEA) is conducting a 04 day training course on Radiation Protection and Quality Assurance in Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology for Radiographers working in Government Hospitals.
Objective of the training course is to provide a better understanding of philosophy and principles of radiation protection & development of safety culture among the radiation workers. 
Course fee for a participant is Rs.9000/= (Including all taxes). Nominations can be submitted to the AEA by filling the duly filled application. The completed application should be sent to the AEA before 15th October 2014 for administrative arrangements of the training course.
