Ionizing radiation can modify the physical, chemical and biological properties of materials; a fact that was recognized very soon after the discovery of radioactivity. At present, most common applications are sterilization of health care products, food irradiation, environment preservation, and materials modification for polymers. 

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has several programmes on irradiation applications. Through the technical co-operation programme, the IAEA supports these activities in developing countries, helping to build local capacity. It also organizes and conducts training courses and workshops, provides individual training to personnel, and sends experts to radiation facilities in Member States where assistance is needed. All these can be carried out much more efficiently and effectively with a comprehensive directory of radiation facilities operating in Member States.              

Such a compilation can serve as a valuable tool for networking amongst regional and interregional facilities. The directories of radiation processing facilities using gamma rays and e-bean/X-ray from radioisotopes was first published in 2004 and 2007 correspondingly, based on information supplied to the IAEA through questionnaires distributed to the organizations involved in operating such facilities in Member States. The present compilation is an update of the efforts from over a decade ago. The database irradiation facilities are classified according to geographical region, country, machine type and beam energy range, or Co-60 activity, uses, and capacity. 

Various means were employed to reach as many organizations as possible. In spite of this effort, it is fair to assume that this directory is not complete. This technology is also rapidly expanding, making it even more important to keep the information in this directory up to date. If your facility is not listed or the information is not up to date, please contact Ms Valeriia Starovoitova at v.starovoitova@iaea.org. Also contact her if you have any questions or wish to report any inaccuracies in the data. 

The use of particular designations of countries or territories does not imply any judgement by the publisher, the IAEA, as to the legal status of such countries or territories, of their authorities and institutions or of the delimitation of their boundaries. The mention of names of specific companies or products (whether or not indicated as registered) does not imply any intention to infringe proprietary rights, nor should it be construed as an endorsement or recommendation on the part of the IAEA.
