Nuclear Regulation

The UAE's Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation (FANR) is the independent regulatory body responsible for oversight of nuclear safety, security, radiation protection and safeguards, and enforcement of global agreements entered into by the UAE.

FANR was established in accordance with Federal Law by Decree No 6 of 2009, Concerning the Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy, which was issued by H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE.

FANR regulates the design, siting, construction, operation and decommissioning of nuclear energy plants in the country. It also regulates all radioactive material and radiation sources used in medicine, research and other industries, and is committed to its core values of safety awareness and responsibility, competency, independence and transparency.

FANR is independent of the ENEC, Nawah and its employees.

Safety is a defining element of our corporate values and culture.
