The authority directed a circular to this effect, Emirates Today obtained a copy of it, for users and suppliers of radioactive sources or radiation generators (x-rays) for medical purposes (radiography, dental radiography, nuclear medicine), or for non-medical purposes (security checks, data logging Wells, training, research, irradiation equipment, measuring devices, industrial radiography).
The commission clarified that the system in force in the country requires these bodies to apply to the Federal Nuclear Supervision Authority to obtain a license to exercise control activity within three working days of receiving this circular.
She pointed out that the transfer of controlled materials to any person who is not authorized by the authority is in violation of the regulatory regulations, and the beneficiary of these transferred materials is applied to him a list of fines, and the authorities to whom the circular is directed, inform the beneficiary parties to communicate with the authority, for instructions to obtain a practice license Their business, as well as see the list of controlled medical devices.
