In accordance with the Regulations of Radiation Safety of TAEK the radiation control activities for granting licence of facilities including hospitals (radiotheraphy, nuclear medicine, x-ray, etc) and industrial those have operation with radiation and radioactive materials are done at Marmara Region.
In case of nuclear and radiological emergency situation, radiation measurements are carried on for radiation protection of the public and the environment. Also activities are carried on to help the improvement of emergency plans at national level. In case of a emergency situation, intervention is done by emergeny situtation personnel(ADME Unit). For this purpose all types of detectors and apparatus are always ready for operation.
The Nuclear Electronics Division (NED) follows recent advances in the field of nuclear electronics. In addition to its research and development activities, the Division is responsible for the maintenance and repair of electronic systems. Since its establishment the Division has designed and manufactured a variety of nuclear measurement instruments for the use of research institutions, medical and industrial establishments, civil defense and the army. Nuclear Electronic Division performs and certificates calibrations of dosimeters and dose rate meters used in radiation metrology in our country. It also attends comparison programs such as TLD postal dose comparison and transfer ionization chamber calibration organized by IAEA/WHO SSDL network. In addition, Nuclear Electronic Division collaborates with national and international institutions and universities and attends international research projects and if demanded, it gives technical consultancy service.
Main tasks of Radioactivity and Analytical Measurement Division are; performing all kinds of radioactivity analyses in food, metal, soil, water, vegetation and environmental samples, sampling and preparation of samples for analyses, evaluation of results and reporting, improving radioactivity measurement and analysis methods and training the stuff about radioactivity measurement methods and QA/QC methods in this field and also performing Tracer elements analyses in different sample matrices (environmental, biological, food samples, etc.), radiochemical separations and adsorption studies, development of new analytical methods .
Applications of radioisotopes and radiopharmaceuticals for medical purposes, their developments, render possible in use and quality controls, training on radiopharmacy, transfer of radioisotopos into industrial radiography projectors, quality control of dose calibrators, use of non-destructive testing in industrial applications, service and training, research and development on nuclear physics and other nuclear fields, fundamental and applied researchs, contributing to man power development in that fields, consulting for Directorate of the Center and Head Quarter in the specialized fields.
Nuclear Technology Division studies on nuclear power plants and nuclear research reactors design and safety; theoretical and experimental applications of neutronic and thermohydrolic of nuclear reactors; following of recent technologies and applications of nuclear fuel cycle from ore to waste; research and development on reactor fuels and materials and also their production techniques and technologies and supplying of technical consultancy in these fields.
Radioactive Waste Management Division (RWMD)is responsible for collecting, processing, transportation, storage and disposal of radioactive waste in Turkey and fulfilling all activities related to the administrative and technical issues.
RWMD works with the basic principles of radioactive waste management, which are protection of human health, environmental protection, protection of communities outside borders, the protection of future generations, minimum responsibility to next generations and minimal waste generation. All the procedures are performed in accordance with national and international regulations.
RWMD has been operating since 1989. Licence of Operation was given by Turkish Atomic Energy Authority (TAEA) on March 2013.
RWMD accepts radioactive waste coming from all around the country. In addition, RWMD transports radioactive waste in accordance with Turkish Atomic Energy Authority’s (TAEA) Transport of Radioactive Materials Regulations.
