The US NRC Radiation Source Regulatory Partnership (RSRP) delivered a workshop to five (5) regulatory staff from Panama’s Ministerio De Salud (MINSA), Department of Radiological Health on licensing and inspection of Nuclear Gauge practices.
The workshop included three formal in-class sessions and two days of on-site inspections. The in-class sessions focused on nuclear gauge safety and security, with focus on the licensing process and inspection protocols. The on-site inspections focused on the inspection process and inspection protocols at both fixed and portable nuclear gauges. The inspections provided an overview of the key aspects to target during an inspection at temporary job sites including security of nuclear material during storage and transport.
