The mission of the AERB is to ensure the use of ionising radiation and nuclear energy in India does not cause undue risk to the health of people and the environment.

Nuclear Projects

The nuclear projects are either nuclear power projects or a nuclear fuel cycle facility projects such as fuel reprocessing facilities, fuel mining & milling facilities and fuel fabrication facilities in India. Various nuclear power projects based on Pressurized Heavy Water Reactors (PHWRs), Fast Breeder reactors (FBRs), Pressurized Water Reactors (PWRs) and fuel cycle facilities are being set up in India.
