Angola to set up organ to regulate atomic energy issues

May 30, 2006 02:00 AM

A project turned to the institutionalisation of an organ to regulate atomic energy issues is being developed by the Ministry of Science and Technology, through the Laboratory for Radio-Protection.
The mentioned institution will be in charge of doing an inventory on the country's radiation sources and, with the approval of the Law on Atomic Energy, will carry out the inspection process, monitoring and licensing of companies that use radio-active equipment.

This project counts on the support of the International Agency for Atomic Energy (IAAE), of which Angola is a member since 1999.
In the framework of the technical co-operation between Angola and the IAAE ten projects have been approved, which involve the use of nuclear techniques, such as to assess marine pollution caused by oil exploration off-shore, non destructive tests, the use of nuclear medicine techniques, among others.

These actions, which are to be implemented in the 2007-2008 biennium, will benefit institutions like the National Oncology Centre, National Technological Centre, Agrarian Sciences Faculty, Fishing Research Institute and the Veterinary Research Institute.
