Paraguay Radiation Sources Inventory and National Registry Project

January 24th, 2012 — 

The CNEA (National Commission of Nuclear Energy of the National University of Asunción (UNA)) with support from RSRP initiated a country-wide project to validate disposition of radiation sources and to develop a National Registry of radiation sources in Paraguay. The project will perform administrative search and confirm source’s disposition through on-site inspections. During the visits the CNEA inspectors will verify facility and source’s data, assign unique regulatory identification numbers and tag the equipment, and take photo records of radiation sources / associated devices. The data will be entered into database software to be used by CNEA for day-to-day regulatory oversight of radiation sources in Paraguay. The project consists of 3 phases, each comprised of inventorying geographical regions starting with Departamento Central del Paraguay. The project will take approximately 12-18 calendar months to complete.
