Committed to the highest levels of transparency, safety and security

At FANR we believe in continuous improvement, and it is a pleasure to welcome you to our new website.

Having worked with the Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation (FANR) in its first four years, it was a privilege to re-join the organisation as Director General in June 2015.

I endeavour to use my 35 years’ experience in nuclear oversight to further enhance FANR’s Mission to protect the public, the workers and the environment by conducting regulatory programmes on nuclear safety, nuclear security, radiation protection and safeguards.

FANR’s Mission stems from the UAE’s decision to pursue a nuclear energy programme whilst adhering to the highest international standards. FANR has established regulations and carries out inspections to protect the nation’s people and environment.

In order to implement FANR’s regulatory framework, FANR licenses the construction and operation of nuclear power plants and all uses of radioactive material and radiation sources such as those used in the medical sector.

FANR’s success in establishing itself as an effective nuclear regulator can be attributed to transparency in its operations, dedication to building the capacities of young Emiratis in the nuclear sector, and assuring the world of FANR’s peaceful nuclear activities by meeting international nuclear safeguards obligations.

FANR has gained international recognition as a competent regulatory body and for its close cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

We welcome stakeholder involvement, so please explore our website and let us know your thoughts and questions. We are here to foster a better understanding and build public confidence in our ability to strictly adhere to the highest standards of nuclear safety.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.
