PNRI LAN and Internet Connectivity


The Philippine Nuclear Research
Institute (PNRI), an agency under
the Department of Science and
Technology, is in charge of
nuclear matters, as well as the
licensing and regulation of
radioactive materials.


The PNRI set up its Local Area
Network with internet connectivity
in 1999.

PNRI Nuclear Training Courses


The PNRI offers training courses in
radiation safety, radioisotope
techniques in the different
applications in medicine, industry and
research, nuclear science education
for high school teachers and
university faculty, and courses in Non
-
Destructive Testing (NDT).


Target participants are radiation
safety officers, radioisotope users,
researchers, and educators.

PNRI Nuclear Training Materials


There are available training materials prepared by
the lecturers, and training materials obtained by
PNRI staff in their training abroad, e.g. CD
-
ROMs of
the IAEA
-
sponsored Basic Professional Training
Course on Nuclear Safety, Emergency Response, etc.


Through PNRI’s participation in the IAEA/RCA
Project on Distance Learning in Radiation Protection,
distance learning modules are being utilized.


CD
-
ROM on Nuclear Science for high school students,
produced by PNRI, is available.

PNRI Nuclear Training Materials



Through PNRI’s participation in the Forum for
Nuclear Cooperation in Asia’s HRD Project,
PNRI training courses and list of training
materials are posted in the webpage of this
project:

PNRI Nuclear Databases


The following nuclear databases can be
accessed on the PNRI website, and can be
downloaded:


Rules and regulations codified into the Code of
PNRI Regulations (CPR)


An Information Package (INFOPAC) compiled for
each part of the Code of PNRI Regulations,
contains the Regulatory Guide and Model
Procedures that any licensee will need


Regulatory Bulletins, to inform licensees and
explain specific requirements in the regulations

PNRI Nuclear Databases


Although not yet uploaded on the LAN of
PNRI, there are a number of databases
containing important information:


Database of personnel who have been trained
abroad through the IAEA, through training
programs of Japan, or other bilateral agreements.


Database of those participated in nuclear training
courses conducted locally by PNRI. Around 7,000
have availed of these courses.

PNRI Nuclear Databases


Database on licensees of radioactive
materials


National Registry of Sealed Radiation
Sources
-

contains information such as activity
of the radioactive material, serial number,
chemical form, company, use, and type of
instrument


Database on personnel dosimetry of radiation
workers


Other Nuclear Safety Documents


PNRI Regulatory Inspection and Audit Manual



PNRI regulatory inspection procedures and
inspection checklists
