Thu, Sep 19, 2013, 11:51 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Sept 19, Colombo: Sri Lanka Minister of Technology Research and Atomic Energy Champika Ranawaka said that the Atomic Energy Act would be amended.

Addressing the 57th session of the International Atomic Energy Agency held in Vienna, Austria, the Minister said that the 43 year old Act would be amended to meet the current needs in line with the international laws and the standards.

Accordingly, the government hopes to establish two new agencies, namely Atomic Energy Board and Atomic Energy Regulatory Commission.

Currently, the Atomic Energy Authority (AEA) is the apex body on promotion of peaceful applications of nuclear technology contributing to socio-economic and environmental development in Sri Lanka.

It is also responsible for implementing regulatory programs conforming to international standards on radiation safety and security to ensure protection of Sri Lankan community from unwarranted exposure to ionizing radiation.
