That the center of radiation protection the executive arm of the
radiation protection one of the formations and the Ministry of
Environment within the framework of the functions of the ministry as
a supervisor is the center of a regulatory consultant under the Law
on the Prevention of ionizing radiation No. ( 99 ) for the year 1980
in force where The center controls on the peaceful uses of
radioactive sources and all nuclear and radiological devices in the
owner institutions and used them and ensure the availability of the
means of prevention of exposure or contamination by and through the
application of safety standards and safety for the environment and
the community and workers , which includes the following main
1 . Controlling the movement of radioactive sources inside Iraq
through licensing of all private sources of radiation acts as
import, export , transport, and sale and purchase , storage and
trading ... etc. .
2 . Workplace monitoring and the application of safety standards and
safety approved and adopted during the work on the radioactive
sources and statements are conducting on-site inspections and
initial and periodic these sites .
3 . Follow the exposure of workers in the field by measuring the
radiation doses personal exposure to them periodically through the
use of technology to measure the level of radiation Movies and TLD
system so special.
4 . Study the biological effects of radiation through a periodic
medical examinations for workers.
5 . Monitoring the Iraqi environment in terms of radiation and is
the measurement of the background radiation in the models of the
environment (soil - water - air).
6 . Radiation assessment of food products and consumer goods by
conducting laboratory tests and certification authority for human
use or consumption of imported materials ( food - consumer ) in
terms of radiation as well as the certificate of freedom from
radioactive contaminants of materials exported out of the country .
7 . Imposing sanctions on violators of the provisions of the Law on
the Prevention of radiation no. (99) Of 1980 and the regulations,
instructions and data regulators issued there under .
The center seeks hard to control radioactive contamination in the
Iraqi environment in different areas, including: -
1 - Examine the
2 - Control over the projects, dismantling and removal of nuclear
facilities destructive of the former Iraqi nuclear program through a
licensing and regulatory oversight on the disassembly and removal
plans prepared by the Ministry of Science and Technology.
3 - Evaluation of naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM)
in oil installations and other extractive industries.
4 - The use of modern technologies through processing laboratories
with the latest equipment to measure pollution and exposure.
5 - Draw a map of radiation to Iraq.
