 Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Board

The Atomic Energy Board (AEB) of Sri Lanka is a Statutory Body functioning under the Ministry of Power and Energy which was established by the Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Act No.40 of 2014.Radiation and Radioisotope Technology has a wide range of applications in many fields that can make a significant contribution to the development of medical, agricultural, industrial, energy and environmental sectors in Sri Lanka. The Atomic Energy Board (AEB) has the responsibility of facilitating the utilization of this technology in the above-mentioned sectors in Sri Lanka.

New Act of Sri Lanka Atomic Energy

The ATOMIC ENERGY AUTHORITY (AEA) which was established by the Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Authority Act, Number 19 of 1969, has been repealed and two institutions – The Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Board and The Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Regulatory Council, have been established by the Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Act, No. 40 of 2014. The new Act was published as a Supplement to Part II of the Gazette of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka of November 07th, 2014.

Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Act, No. 40 of 2014 certified on 04th November, 2014, empowers the Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Board (AEB) to carry out activities to promote and encourage the use of Nuclear Science and Technology for national development purposes; while the Atomic Energy Regulatory Council for the regulation of practices involving ionizing radiation, the safety and security of sources and the Non- Proliferation of nuclear weapons and the safeguards.

The Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Board permits the beneficial and peaceful applications of nuclear science and technology in health, industry, environment and agriculture, for national development within Sri Lanka.

The Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Regulatory Council ensures adequate protection of individuals, society and the environment now and in the future, against the potentially harmful effects of ionizing radiation and for the safety and security of radiation sources, by the establishment and maintenance of a regulatory control system, including the adoption of standards, licensing system, inspection and enforcement to govern all practices involving ionizing radiation.

The New Act fulfills obligations of the government of Sri Lanka under relevant international instruments in the field of nuclear energy entered into by Sri Lanka, and in particular the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons and the Safeguards Agreements.The new Act came into operation on 1st January 2015.

Expert Mission to Establish Beta Spectrometric Technique in Sri Lanka

work group One of the major tasks of Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Board (SLAEB) is to establish nuclear analytical procedures needed for Socio – economic development of Sri Lanka.
The Life Sciences Division (LSD) of SLAEB has already established series of analytical procedures accredited as per ISO 17025 standards. These procedures are being used to fulfill regulatory requirement in the country. Especially it is needed to control the radioactive Cs-137 and Sr-90 levels in milk and other food items as per the Gazettes notification L.D-B. 36/ 21st July 1995
Although LSD has the capability and capacity to analysis Cs-137 it was necessary to establish analytical procedure for Sr-90 in milk as there was no laboratory in Sri Lanka for obtaining this service. It has now been able to establish Sr -90 analysis in milk food. Analysis by Beta spectroscopy with the technical support received nuclear the IAEA national project IAEA/SRL / 0011 titled “Upgrading Nuclear Analytical Capabilities of the SLAEB.”
