Radiation Safety Inspection to Strengthening Regulatory Effectiveness

June 19th, 2018

Tanzania Atomic Energy Commission reminds that in accordance to the Atomic Energy Act and its subsequent regulations require that every radiation user, radiation generating device and mobile radioactive apparatus be registered and licensed and any person intending to initiate a practice or to possess a radiation source, shall submit a prior notification to the Commission of such an intention. The Atomic Energy Act provide powers to the Commission to take necessary enforcement actions in the event of violation of safety requirements, which include suspension of those facilities with serious violations that jeopardize the safety of workers, patients and the public in general. The Commission has strengthened its systematic inspection programme and rigorous inspections are now being carried throughout the country.
