Parliamentary Secretary for Consumer Protection and Public Cleansing Deo Debattista addressed the opening meeting between the National Commission for the Protection from Ionising and Non-Ionising Radiation (RPC) & the Integrated Regulatory Review Service


 

The IRRS team, which is formed by international expert members on radiation, evaluates a state’s regulatory infrastructure for safety in terms of nuclear, radiation and radioactive waste, and transport safety according to the IAEA safety standards. The RPC is a legal entity governed by the Nuclear Safety and Radiation Protection Act (Cap 585) within the Ministry for Tourism and Consumer Protection. This Commission ensures a justified use of ionising and non-ionising radiation whilst providing a framework for adequate protection of people and the physical protection of nuclear material.
