Nuclear regulatory authority
Nuclear safety regulation in Malta is the responsibility of the Radiation Protection Board.
There are no nuclear power plants or research reactors. Radioactive sources are medical and industrial.
Radioactive waste and spent fuel management
Main legal instruments
Legal notice 44/2003 (Nuclear Safety and Radiation Protection Regulations) transposes Malta’s obligations under the BSS, Outside Workers, CPPNM and sets up the Radiation Protection Board. Malta does not have a specific regulation for providing general radiation/nuclear public information other than Legal notice 2445/2002 Radiological Emergency (Information to the Public) Regulations which deals with radiological emergencies.
The existing pop-up refers to the Occupational Health and Safety Authority which is incorrect. Also in the list of national regulators the link should be to the Radiation Protection Board and not to the Occupational Health and Safety Authority.
