Radioactive sources have various utilization in many fields in Thailand including medical, industrial, research and education. Thailand regulatory body, Office of Atoms for Peace (OAP) has been regulating the imports and exports of radioactive sources under the Atomic Energy for Peace Act, B.E. 2504 (1961) and Nuclear Energy for Peace Act, B.E. 2559 (2016) through the licensing process and customs declaration process. Under these processes, licensees must report their imports and exports by submitting confirmation documents to the OAP with in 15 days. To improve these processes, the OAP and Thai Customs have collaborated through a government and government partnership (G2G), in July 2016, to initiate electronic data sharing in a digital format called License Per Invoice (LPI), which includes all the necessary information for verification of import and export, such as radioactivity, port number, and Harmonized System Code (HS Code). The new process enhances information accuracy, integrity, and security, as well as increasing regulation efficiency, reducing the amount of paper work, and better facilitate all stakeholders for import and export of radioactive sources in Thailand.
