Promulgation of radiation protection legislation in Kenya dates back to 1982, was revised in 1985 and became operational in 1986. This law, the Radiation Protection Act, establishes the Radiation Protection Board as the National Regulatory Authority, with an executive Inspectorate headed by the Secretary to the Board. Subsidiary legislation on radiological practices and standards were subsequently published. The Inspectorate carries out the National programme for notification, authorization, inspection and enforcement. Budgetary constraints, insufficient human and equipment resources has placed limitations to the effectiveness and efficiency of implementation of the National programme and slowed the attainment of milestones 3 through 5 for the model project for upgrading radiation protection infrastructures.
