Unlocking Nuclear Possibilities: ARN Resolution 16/2024, Grants Individual Permits for Medical Applications

In the vibrant city of Buenos Aires, a pivotal development is underway in the realm of nuclear activities. The Regulatory Nuclear Authority (ARN) has issued Resolution 16/2024, marking a significant stride in aligning with the National Nuclear Activity Law No. 24.804 and its regulatory framework.

Navigating the Regulatory Landscape

The legal intricacies outlined in Law No. 24.804 and its regulatory decree, No. 1390/98, set the stage for this resolution. A series of Individual Permits, encapsulated in Act CAAR No. 11/23, List 1025 – focusing on Medical Applications, have been under scrutiny.

Compliance is Key

According to Article 9, Clause a, of Law No. 24.804, anyone, be it an individual or a legal entity, venturing into nuclear activities in Argentina must adhere to the regulations laid down by the ARN. This includes obtaining the requisite License, Permit, or Authorization for their operations. Additionally, Article 16, Clause c, empowers the ARN to grant, suspend, or revoke licenses and permits concerning radioactive materials.

Individuals on the Radar ARN Resolution 16/2024

A roster of individuals, detailed in the annex accompanying this resolution, has submitted Individual Permit applications for the use of Radioisotopes or Ionizing Radiations. These applications fall within the purview of Medical Applications, making them subject to stringent regulatory oversight.

Rigorous Evaluation by the Radiological Security Division

The Radiological, Physical, and Safeguard Security Division meticulously scrutinized the procedural adherence of the mentioned applications. Their assessment ensured that applicants possessed the necessary education, training, and expertise vital for obtaining or renewing the coveted permits.

Advisory Council’s Nod

The Advisory Council on Radioisotope and Ionizing Radiation Applications (CAAR), in its 11/23 Meeting, specifically focusing on Medical Applications (List 1025), endorsed the favorable progression of these permit applications. This advisory stamp further solidifies the credibility and appropriateness of the granted permits.

Legal and Administrative Checks

The Legal Affairs and Administrative Affairs & Resources Departments of ARN have diligently played their part in the processing of these applications. Their involvement adds an extra layer of assurance to the entire regulatory procedure.
