2012-11-14 09:58:15
WAM Abu Dhabi, Nov 14th, 2012 (WAM) -- The Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation (FANR) today released a new draft regulatory guide on Radiation Safety in Industrial Radiography (FANR-RG-019). FANR is inviting the public to review and comment on it.

The guide aims to help industrial radiography licensees who possess, use, manufacture, handle, store, transport or dispose of regulated material to understand and comply with the FANR's Regulation on Basic Safety Standards for Facilities and Activities Involving Ionising Radiation other than in Nuclear Facilities (FANR-REG-24). It is worth mentioning that the regulatory guide adopts the guide of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on Radiation Safety in Industrial Radiography (SSG-11).

FANR recognises the importance of involving its stakeholders as part of its Core Value of transparency. The draft regulatory guide on Radiation Safety in Industrial Radiography (FANR-RG-019) can be found on the FANR's website www.fanr.gov.ae and members of the public can send their comments to regulation@fanr.gov.ae during the next 30 days.

FANR's nuclear glossary, which can be found on FANR's website, can help interested readers to understand the specific vocabulary used in this regulatory guide.

As with previous regulations and regulatory guides, this draft guide has already been made available for 30 days to local and federal government entities for their comments.
