The Atomic Energy Authority (AEA) of Sri Lanka is a Statutory Body functioning under the Ministry of Technology, Research and Atomic Energy and was established by the Atomic Energy Authority Act No.19 of 1969.

Radiation and Radioisotope Technology which has a wide range of applications in many areas can make a significant contribution to the development of medical, agricultural, industrial, energy and environmental sectors in Sri Lanka. The Atomic Energy Authority (AEA) has the responsibility of facilitating the utilization of this technology in the above-mentioned sectors and ensuring that all uses of radiation and radioisotopes are carried out according to the internationally accepted safety standards.

We are the Atomic Energy Authority of Sri Lanka, the apex body …

  • On promotion of peaceful applications of nuclear technology contributing to socio-economic and environmental development in Sri Lanka.

  • Responsible for implementing regulatory programmes conforming to international standards on radiation safety and security to ensure protection of Sri Lankan community from unwarranted exposure to ionizing radiation.
  • Contributing to socio-economic and environmental development in Sri Lanka.

Workshop on ‘Preparedness for Radiological and Nuclear Emergency Response’

Atomic Energy Authority (AEA) is responsible for management of radiological and nuclear emergencies that could affect Sri Lanka. As the responsible agency advising Disaster Management Center on protective actions, AEA should have technical skills and resources for accurate radiological assessment and response.
Since the scientific staff of AEA is inadequate for work in a catastrophic situation (for example deployment of monitoring teams to the affected areas in the country from Colombo at the same time is impracticable), AEA wishes to obtain assistance from eligible persons from university scientific staff (academic and non-academic), school science teachers, students and professionals who are living in the different areas of the country and wish to work voluntarily to the AEA in an emergency situation.
