The Minister of Minerals and Energy has published the National Nuclear Regulator Amendment Bill for comment.

Comments must be sent to [email protected] by no later than Monday, 20 September 2021

The Bill seeks to address the existing gaps in the current National Nuclear Regulator Act, 1999 (Act 47 of 1999). It strengthens the enforcement provisions of the inspectors and the occupational safety exposure risks for the air crews. It also seeks to align with the International Atomic Energy Agency prescripts and its best practice. South Africa is a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency.
