 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ENERGY AUTHORITY (AEA) which was established by the Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Authority Act, Number 19 of 1969, has been repealed and two institutions The Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Board and The Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Regulatory Council, have been established by the Sri Lanka Atomic Energy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.

Field Sampling session for Identification of source and transport of agro-contaminants in water ways connected to the Gregory lake in Nuwara Eliya.

1A research study is being implemented by the Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Board (SLAEB) in collaboration with Natural Recourses Management Centre (NRMC) of the Department of Agriculture under the activities of International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) Regional Technical Cooperation project of RAS 5084 with the above title.

Agriculture is the main source of pollution in rivers and streams and this has a direct negative impact on human health. When pollutants from multiple sources to an agro-ecosystem occur, traditional techniques cannot help in evaluating the relative contribution of the different sources. Complementarily to conventional monitoring and mass balance approaches, stable isotopes of major biogenic elements (H,C,N,O and S) have the potential to characterize and quantify sources and transport of solutes through soil and water bodies in agro-ecosystems.

Overall objective of this study is to trace and monitor sources and movement of macronutrients and micro-contaminants from soil to surface water bodies under different land uses and urban areas surrounding to the Gregory lake in Nuwara Eliya using combined stable isotope and conventional techniques.

 A field sampling programme to collect samples from the water ways coming from natural forests, tea plantations, vegetable lands, urban areas and  from Gregory lake was conducted on 24thJune 2020  with the participation of project team members of  SLAEB and NRMC.                                                                                                                                 





Welder Qualification Facility and Exposure Room of NCNDT

Brief description the opening ceremony of the Welder Qualification  Facility and Radiography Exposure Room



Welder Qualification Facility  

Newly established Welder Qualification Facility and Exposure Room of the National Centre for NonDestructive Centre (NCNDT) of Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Board (SLAEB) was declared open by Prof. S.R.D. Rosa, Chairman and the Members of the Board of SLAEB on 23rd June 2020. With these two establishments, all the infrastructure facilities approved by the Government under the NDT Project Proposal have been successfully completed. The Welder Qualification Facility (WQF) under the purview of NCNDT established with a view to create internationally accepted welding professionals such as welders, supervisors, inspectors, etc. This wellestablished WQF consists of calibrated equipment, safety environment, and competent resource personnel with internationally accepted certification schemes such as CWI, CSWIP, etc. This programme expects to promote skilled welders with multiple capacities to upgrade their recognition by obtaining a internationally valid certification.
