Government departments participate in radiation monitoring training with International Atomic Energy Agency

Posted: Thursday, February 17, 2022. 1:39 pm CST.

By Benjamin Flowers: Departments within the Government of Belize (GOB) began the first session of a two-day basic training course today, being hosted by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Personnel from the Department of the Environment along with other key Departments are attending the training on ionizing radiation protection and monitoring.

The sessions for the training course are being held in country with guest IAEA facilitators coming in from abroad.

In 2020 GOB passed the Radiation Safety and Security Act, which established a new national regulatory body, the Radiation Safety and Security Office (RSSO), within the Department of the Environment.

Empowered by the Act RSSO is, among other things, responsible for the effective establishment of a national regulatory framework for the use of nuclear technology including establishing regulatory control over activities, practices, and facilities involving ionizing radiation.

“This regulatory control will help to guarantee that activities and practices are authorized and inspected; that the safeguards obligations of the country are implemented; that healthcare professionals deliver accurate and appropriate doses to patients; that radiation protection programmes are established to protect workers; that facilities are operated safely and securely, and that well-functioning and properly calibrated equipment are in use, among other precautions and safety provisions,” the IAEA said, last year.
