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ENERGY AUTHORITY (AEA) which was established by the Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Authority Act, Number 19 of 1969, has been repealed and two institutions – The Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Board and The Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Regulatory Council, have been established by the Sri Lanka Atomic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


SLAEB Handed over Radiation Measurement and Detection devices to the Airport & Aviation Services (Sri Lanka) Limited.

dg2Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Board (SLAEB) Handed over the set of Nuclear Security Detection Instruments to the Airport & Aviation Services (Sri Lanka) Limited. These equipment were donated by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) through Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Board (SLAEB) under the ongoing project of “Integrated Nuclear Security Support Plan (INSSP) for Sri Lanka”. This project is a collaborative project of SLAEB, Sri Lanka Customs, Sri Lankan Airlines Limited and Airport & Aviation Services (Sri Lanka) Limited. It is expected to enhance the Airport & Aviation Services (Sri Lanka) Limited’s capacity in nuclear security detection and respond under this project.

Expert mission to develop methodologies in the analysis of stable isotopes using Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometer (IRMS) and the awareness programme

dg2Stable isotope techniques are tools used by researchers worldwide in authenticating foodstuffs, tracing the drugs,identifying food adulterants, pollution monitoring, ground water monitoring, studies in marine ecosystems, diagnosis of diseases, understanding metabolic pathways in humans, and to answer many fundamental questions in nature. Stable isotopes already play an important role in research today and will become even more important for researchers in the future. Hence the Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Board (SLAEB) is in the process of developing methodologies in the analysis of stable isotopes using Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometric (IRMS) techniques. SLAEB has established the first ever IRMS laboratory in Sri Lanka at its laboratory complex located Colombo, Sri Lanka through the technical cooperation of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and on a Government cost sharing.


National Workshop on “Isotope Techniques in Water Resources Management”

Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Board (SLAEB) has organized a half day workshop on “Isotope Techniques in Water Resources Management” on 20th December 2018 at SLAEB auditorium.

Expert Mission

DSC 1093-CDSC 1109- CExpert Mission to Establish 14C Analytical Technique in Groundwater Dating


Isotope Hydrology Section of the Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Board is currently working on groundwater investigation in the dry zone of Sri Lanka with objective of finding clean drinking water sources. IAEA supports this work by assisting to develop new analytical methods related to isotope techniques in hydrology. Isotope Hydrology section has already established some nuclear analytical techniques (3H, 2H and 18O measurements) and chemical analysis methods to support such projects. Establishment of 14C analysis in deep groundwater is one of the essential requirements to expand the ongoing research works. IHS has planned to introduce 14C sampling technique and analysis methods in near future.

IAEA expert Dr. Bhishm Kumar visited SLAEB during 14th - 18th May 2018 under     IAEA/ TC project SRL 7006. The objective of the expert mission was to plan the project activities particularly sampling strategies for isotope analysis. The sampling techniques were demonstrated in the field for 14C analysis, 3H analysis, other isotopes and water chemistry. The field visit demonstration was facilitated by Regional Centers of Water Recourses Board (WRB) in Anuradhapura and Puttlam. Isotope Hydrology staff of SLAEB and officers from WRB participated in the field demonstration.
