The Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) has stepped up efforts to pursue a “develop-educate-regulate” approach to spread awareness among public and for enforcement of regulatory requirements.

An AERB official told Business Standard: “AERB, which is entrusted with the responsibility of developing and enforcing nuclear and radiation safety regulations in the country, has the mandate to keep the public informed on radiation and nuclear safety related matters. Public outreach is an essential element to build long-lasting trust and confidence with media and public.”
