FANR invites the public to review and comment on draft radiation safety regulation

The Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation (FANR) released the revised Regulation No. 04 for Radiation Dose Limits and Optimisation of Radiation Protection for Nuclear Facilities and invited the public to review and comment on the draft. The draft regulation is available on the FANR website. The public can send their comments via email for 30 days, from 15th May to 15th June 2018.

The regulation establishes the radiation dose limits that are relevant to a nuclear facility during its design, construction, and normal operation and decommissioning. In order to understand the specific terminology used in this regulation, the public can refer FANR’s Safety, Security and Safeguards Glossary. FANR will consider all comments before preparing the final draft. The move reflects FANR’s understanding of the importance of the public’s opinion and feedback on all regulations issued and the transparency standards that support its mission to protect workers, public and the environment.
