BANGI, MAY 24TH 2024: Secretary General of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) Dato' Ts. Dr Hj. Aminuddin bin Hassim inaugurated the 18th Postgraduate Educational Course (PGEC-18) on Radiation Protection and Safety of Radiation Sources, which took place at Bangi Avenue Convention Center (BACC) in Bangi, Selangor.


This PGEC-18 course has brought together 25 participants from 17 countries, including professionals, researchers, and policymakers from the Asia Pacific region. Through this approach, participants can understand and strengthen the implementation of international safety standards by developing human capital in radiation safety.



In fact, on September 27th 2022, Malaysia signed a Practical Arrangement (PA) in Vienna, Austria, with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) regarding education and training in radiation, transport, and safety of radioactive waste. Further to this agreement, Nuklear Malaysia has acted as a regional training centre for the Asia Pacific region.

Therefore, to mainstream the peaceful use of nuclear technology in the Asia Pacific region, Nuklear Malaysia welcomes strategic collaboration between IAEA member countries. Thus, it can positively impact the country's socioeconomic growth.


MOSTI Deputy Secretary General (Technology Development) Datuk Ts. Dr. Mohd Nor Azman bin Hassan, Nuklear Malaysia's top management, and embassy representatives from participating countries involved in this program were also present.
