The UAE’s Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation (FANR) has signed two international co-operation agreements with leading nuclear regulators aimed at exchange of knowledge and information related to the peaceful use of nuclear energy, as well as safety and regulatory-related information.

The first is an "Information Exchange Arrangement" signed with the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) of Great Britain. The arrangement aims to exchange information on matters related to the peaceful use of nuclear energy.

It also paves way for exchange of information on legislation, regulations, licenses as well as construction, operation and decommissioning of nuclear installations, said a statement from FANR.

The second deal was signed with the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, CNSC, to exchange safety and regulatory-related information. It covers regulatory aspects of the safety and security of nuclear power plants and radioactive source, safety-related research in connection with licensing and regulatory control of nuclear facilities and other aspects

These agreements were signed on the sideline of the 61st General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) held in Vienna, Austria, where FANR joined other UAE delegation members on the high-profile platform.

An independent federal authority, FANR was established in 2009 to regulate all nuclear-related activities and licenses the use of radioactive sources in the UAE in line with the provisions of the Federal Law on the peaceful use of nuclear energy.
