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.

Orphan Source Search programmeat Regional Agriculture Research and Development Centre, Makandura, Gonawila.

 

alt= height=An orphan source search programme was carried out in August 2014 at Regional Agriculture Research and Development Centre, Makandura, Gonawila by the Division of Radiation Protection & Regulations, Atomic Energy Authority (AEA).
The objective of this program was to find out the orphan radioactive sources which were out of regulatory control. This site was selected due to the prior involvement of use of radioactive materials in 1980 s. The information of use of the material was found from the internet while scrutinizing the research paper published in late 1980 for postgraduate programmes.
One source was very old and nobody knew that the container contains a radioactive source. This source search helped to regaining control over two sources that were out of regulatory control.
