FANR shares affirmative IAEA Nuclear Non-proliferation report with UAE Customs Agencies

posted on 02/06/2016: 1998 views

The UAE's Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation, FANR, has delivered an International Atomic Energy Agency, IAEA, report to customs agencies in the UAE, responsible for meeting the nation's nuclear non-proliferation obligations.

The FANR delegation met with officials from the Federal Customs Authority, Abu Dhabi Customs and Dubai Customs over the course of three meetings from May 29 to 31. Led by Deputy Director-General for Administration Mohamed Al Zaabi, the FANR representatives included Director of Safeguards Ladislav Bartak, Export/Import Manager Mohamed Foolad, Safeguards Manager Steve Brion and Government Communications Director Salah Al Hashimi.

Effective accountancy and control of nuclear material and nuclear trade controls are essential components of the UAE's State System of Accounting for and Control of nuclear material (SSAC) that plays a critical role in helping the UAE to meet its obligations as a non-nuclear-weapon state party to the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty.

Under the treaty, the UAE has committed to undertaking only peaceful nuclear activities and to preventing any illicit movements of nuclear material, equipment and technology that might contribute to the proliferation of nuclear weapons.

"FANR is dedicated to supporting the UAE's commitment to conducting only peaceful nuclear activities in the nations and to combatting the illicit trade of nuclear-weapon-usable materials and technologies," said FANR Director General Christer Viktorsson. "FANR works closely with all relevant UAE entities to ensure that the nation implements the most stringent nuclear non-proliferation measures."

The report shared this week from IAEA headquarters in Vienna was officially provided to FANR earlier this month after a team of international experts conducted an IAEA SSAC Advisory Service (ISSAS) mission to the UAE to review the UAE's legal, regulatory, administrative and technical arrangements that comprise the UAE's nuclear non-proliferation framework.

The IAEA review assessed the UAE's Nuclear Law and associated FANR regulations, compliance with international nuclear export control regime requirements, and licensing of the possession, use and handling of nuclear materials and import/export of nuclear material and nuclear-related items.

The ISSAS mission highlighted the UAE's robust implementation of its nuclear non-proliferation obligations. The final ISSAS report found many good practices and offered suggestions for further strengthening the effectiveness and improving the efficiency of the UAE's nuclear non-proliferation, safeguards and nuclear export control arrangements. - Emirates News Agency, WAM -
