11 CURRENT INITIATIVE ON LEGAL INFRASTRUCTURE A comprehensive Atomic Energy Act is being reviewed (IAEA Standard) and AELB is discussing with various agencies in strengthening legal infrastructure of nuclear activities in Malaysia. Anticipate to come out with a more comprehensive and effective act on nuclear activities e.g. CPPNM, AP, export control, compoundable offences or its criminalization etc. Adoption of 49 IAEA Standards related to RR and NPP. Developing more guidance documents for licensee. 11
