By BBN Staff: The Government of Belize today held an opening ceremony to launch the National Inventory on Radiation Sources, an initiative derived from the establishment of a National Radiation Safety Infrastructure in Belize.
A team from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Mission to Belize is in the country to carry out this exercise that is jointly spearheaded by the Department of the Environment (DOE) and the Belize Defense Force (BDF).
Personnel from the DOE, Customs Department, BDF, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Energy, and the University of Belize will begin the inventory exercise on tomorrow to collect information on any potential source of radiation.
