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.

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.

ANNUAL PROFICIENCY TESTING SCHEMES IN NUCLEAR ANALYTICAL LABORATORIES AT THE ATOMIC ENERGY AUTHORITY, SRI LANKA

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.
