Currently 36 employees are working in NRSA. Almost 90% have higher education.
Unfortunately, due to absence of national training centers in the field of radiation
protection in the country it is necessary to train the staff abroad. Mostly by the help of
IAEA training courses, fellowships and scientific visits. Most of specialists left the
country in 90th. Available chairs in different universities such us nuclear physics,
sanitary physicians, radiochemistry, etc. faced shortage of professional specialists and
lack of modern equipment. Available equipment in these chairs are operating more than
25-30 years and not calibrated.
In 2008 a new project was submitted to the IAEA for 2009-2011 cycle on “Establishment
of Educational and Training Centre in the field of radiation protection” which was approved
Under this project, training of teachers on radiation protection in different fields such as
medicine, industry, research, education and agriculture is foreseen. Trained teachers will
apply their knowledge in training of RPOs, radiation workers and radiation experts. The
delivery of modern equipment is also foreseen for conducting the practical exercises.
The established center will help to cover training needs of the whole country. In future,
establishment of center branches is foreseen in remote areas of the country.
Unfortunately neither information nor quality management system exists in NRSA.
The help of IAEA in elaborating these systems will be very valuable.
One of the main problems during the issuance of license to
users is absence of companies providing technical services.
There are no any companies in Tajikistan providing workplace
monitoring and quality control in roentgen-diagnostic,
radiotherapy and nuclear medicine. Currently the legislative
base on obligation of users to conduct workplace monitoring
and quality control in order to obtain a license is elaborating.
Due to absence of specialists in this field, it is decided to
establish a technical services department under the NRSA. The
necessary equipment is purchased by NRSA.
Qualified IAEA expert for two-week mission is needed to train
the personnel of technical services department of NRSA to
conduct workplace monitoring and quality control in roentgen
diagnostic, radiotherapy and nuclear medicine
