Atomic Energy Board of Namibia
The Atomic Energy Board of Namibia (AEB) was established in 2009 pursuant to the requirements under Section 3 of the Atomic Energy and Radiation Protection Act, 2005 (Act No. 5 of 2005). The AEB is an advisory body reporting to the Minister of Health and Social Services. The secretary of the AEB is the director of the NRPA, which is the technical arm responsible for the administration of the Act. The AEB endeavours to manage Namibia’s nuclear and radioactive materials in a manner that safeguards people and respects and protects the environment today and in future. Through the provision of appropriate advice, the AEB ensures that the use of radiation and nuclear energy in Namibia does not cause unacceptable impacts on the health of workers, members of the public and on the environment.
