Radioactive Waste Management

South Africa, through the National Nuclear Regulator, imposes strict regulations on the disposal of radioactive waste (radwaste) and unused radionuclides, and being in violation of these regulations can lead to significant health, environmental, and on-the-job risks, not to mention fines and suspension of operations. 

CareTac wields a wide range of professional solutions to help you manage and dispose of your radwaste. Moreover, we understand that many companies in South Africa have an international presence, and therefore such companies may need to comply with international regulations set by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). CareTac can accommodate this need by tailor our radwaste management services to help companies comply with South African regulations, IAEA regulations, or both.
