legislation regulations and guidance
LegislationRegulations and Guidance

NRSAcompleted the work on drafting the following legislative

and normative documents:

  • State system of accounting and control of nuclear materials
  • Rules of account and control of individual exposure doses
  • On requirements on ensuring radiation safety
  • Norms of radiation safety
  • On transportation of radioactive wastes and etc.

These documents have been developed taking into account

exploitation experience and international recommendations. The

IAEA experts provide invaluable assistance and took active partin

the development of the documents. These documents were agreed

with the relevant ministries and authorities and now in approval

stage in the Ministry of Justice.

Organization structure, responsibilities, effective independence, strengths and weakness, funding of the regulatory authority

regulatory body staffing and training
Regulatory Body Staffing and Training

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.

notification authorization licensing inspections
Notification - Authorization – Licensing - Inspections
  • Registry of nuclear and radioactive sources is established – RASOD (Financed by NRC). Inventory is completed in whole regions of Tajikistan. (North, South, West and East).
  • Licensing activity started. 26 Licenses are issued. Additional set of documents for licensing obtained are submitted and under consideration.
  • Inspection of organizations which are dealing with RS are carried out in accordance with the annual plan. (Problem-relevant equipment).
  • Searches and identification of orphan sources were continued in the North and West. More than 500 “orphan” and sources which were stored in conditions not responding to the norms of radiation protection were revealed. Most of them belong to the enterprises which became bankrupted and management of new established organizations don’t have information about their existence. By the help of IAEA revealed sources transported to RWDS. Searches in South and East are foreseen in 2009.
  • Works on improvement the physical protection of main sites are continued. Project with UK.
  • Enforcement measures are not applied in 2008. (Power available)
management system
Management System

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
