Food Irradiation Clearances Database
The Food Irradiation Clearances database is a compilation of information on country approvals of irradiated foods for human consumption. The information includes country name, class of food, specific food product, objective of irradiation, date of approval and recommended dose limit. View database »

Food Irradiation Facilities Database
The Food Irradiation Facilities database is a compilation of information on facilities for the irradiation of foods intended for human consumption. The information includes country name, facility contact details, type of irradiator and energy source. View database »

This information resource is a valuable addition to our previously published Food Irradiation Clearances Database. Both databases are maintained by the Food and Environmental Protection Subprogramme of the Joint FAO/IAEA Division of Nuclear Techniques in Food and Agriculture. They are both available on the IAEA NUCLEUS portal for nuclear knowledge and information. NUCLEUS is the common access point to the IAEA scientific, technical and regulatory information resources. It incorporates and facilitates access to more than 100 IAEA databases, scientific and technical publications, as well as safety standards.
