From October 28 to 30, John Kinneman of AdSTM, Inc. met with the Senegalese Authority for Radioprotection and Nuclear Security (ARSN) in Dakar, Senegal. The Director General and her staff described the current status of the regulatory body and their plans for development over the next few years. In addition, they presented information on the uses of radioactive material and ionizing radiation within the Republic of Senegal and the challenges those uses present for the regulatory body. They also discussed radiation safety services such as personnel dosimetry and instrument calibration which need development in Senegal. The AdSTM representative discussed the Radiation Sources Regulatory Partnership (RSRP) and ways that program might be helpful to ARSN. At the conclusion of the meeting, a Memorandum of Understanding was exchanged.
