Rights and Permissions

Increasing medical radiation facility strongly demands to have a dedicated, competent regulatory body for guiding and managing radiation safety, quality, and standardization of rules and regulations to safeguard the human population nature from adverse effects of radiation. In India, we have the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board for managing the medical radiation facility for diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions and also to save them from radiation hazards under the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), India. The Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) has launched the e-Licensing of Radiation Application (eLORA), which is an application built on the web-based that establishes a channel of direct communication between the AERB and its stakeholders for information and communication exchanges in terms of providing regulatory services with higher levels of effectiveness, reliability, and transparency. They also provide various radiation awareness programs, advertisements, and radiation safety guidelines for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. DAE has a very wide spectrum in which the AERB plays a vital role in establishing regulatory processes, activities of radiation facilities such as radiodiagnosis, radiotherapy, and nuclear medicine in medical also create and publish regulatory safety documentation for utilities and consumers along with acts and regulation. Basically, AERB provides the common platform for all the radiation practicing medical institutions through eLORA, which help to streamline the radiation practice toward the betterment of humankind.
