Give atomic regulator legal teeth: IAEA

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has suggested the government embed in law the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) as an independent regulatory body.

  1. IAEA recommended that the AERB review the implementation of its policies and existing arrangements to ensure its independence as a regulator.
  2. IAEA has said that in order to ensure the independence of the regulatory body is clear and transparent
  3. Government should strengthen the legislative framework by creating in law the AERB, as a regulatory body separated from entities having responsibilities or interests that could unduly influence its decision making.
