After enforcement of the nationwide lockdown, AERB had put in place a suitable mechanism for safety
    monitoring and regulatory supervision of the nuclear and radiation facilities, including safety review and
    processing of applications for various licences / regulatory clearances. AERB has been doing this with minimum
    staff attending the office, with other staff working from home (WFH), fully complying with the COVID-19
    prevention measures. In view of the restrictions imposed during lockdown, regulatory inspections involving visits
    to the regulated facilities were deferred, and alternate mechanisms were instituted to verify the compliance to
    regulatory / safety requirements / stipulations. Important meetings were conducted through video / tele
    conferencing. The e-Licensing portal for radiation applications (eLORA) remained fully functional and the
    licensing applications are being processed timely.

              AERB is taking possible measures to prevent hardships to the parties and licensees during these difficult

              AERB is also continuously updating itself from regulatory experience feedback received from foreign
    regulatory counterparts in dealing with COVID-19 situation. AERB prepared Standard Operating Procedures
    (SOPs) incorporating all the advisories.

              In these difficult times, our supporting staff involved with essential services are working untiringly.
              Earnestly appeal to you all to follow the Government issued guidelines scrupulously to stay safe and
    prevent spread of COVID-19 pandemic.
