UAE to set up nuclear regulatory body

Dubai, Oct 5 (PTI) The United Arab Emirates will set up a nuclear regulatory body to monitor the peaceful use of atomic energy in the country.

The move is in accordance with the criteria set up by the UN nuclear watchdog IAEA as a framework for the successful implementation of the Peaceful Nuclear Energy Programme, official news agency Wam said.

A new federal law, issued by President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, prohibits the development, construction or operation of uranium enrichment or spent fuel reprocessing facilities within the borders of the UAE.

In keeping with its policy commitment to complete operational transparency, the UAE consulted closely with the International Atomic Energy Agency as well as the governments of major nuclear suppliers (France, the US, UK, Japan, South Korea) in the development of the law, the Wam reported.
