					Annex VIII Thematic Sector Lead Countries and Thematic Sector Lead Country Coordinators Background According to Section 2.6 of RCA Guidelines and Operating Rules, the appointment of Thematic Sector Lead and Assistant Lead Countries should be decided at a Regional or General Conference Meeting of the National RCA Representatives, preferably at the start of preparation for a funding cycle. The term of appointment shall be four years unless otherwise decided at a Meeting of the National RCA Representatives. Since several Thematic Sector Lead Countries have completed the stipulated period of four years, this issue was presented for the consideration of the 27th Regional Meeting of the National RCA Representatives. The list of current TSLCCs is annexed (Annex 1). Following the discussion on this issue, the 27th NRM decided to consider the appointment of TSLCCs at the 34th RCA GCM. It was also decided that the Member States offering to be TSLCs should provide information on the proposed TSLCCs in advance to verify that they had the qualifications and experience stipulated in the RCA Guidelines and Operating Rules. RCA Secretariat has received information on TSLCCs proposed for the following Thematic Sectors Thematic Sector Agriculture Agriculture Environment Environment Industry Industry Industry Human Health Radiation Protection Member State China India New Zealand Philippines Australia India Pakistan Japan Australia Annex 2 Annex 3 Annex 4 Annex 5 Annex 6 Annex 7 Annex 8 Annex 9 Annex 10

The TSLCC Meeting held in August 2005 has recommended that the rotation of Lead Countries and TSLCCs should be at the start of a new project cycle.

Member RTAC-BRNS (for Agriculture)and other committees in BARC

Research Contributions In the past 33 years at BARC have been involved with various research programmes in agriculture, Plant and Microbial Biotechnology. As Head of the Nuclear Agriculture and Biotechnology Division ( since 2001). a major ongoing programme of tremendous societal impact in the NA&BT Division was the „Crop improvement using radiation-induced mutation‟. The major crops we are working on are groundnut, mustard, black gram, greengram, Piegeonpea, Soybean, sunflower, wheat, rice, green manure crops, linseed, cowpea etc especially for enhanced yield, tolerance to biotic and abiotic stresses and quality improvement. This programme has made a very significant progress in terms of research, development and deployment of Trombay varieties of oilseeds and pulses. Along with the Divisional breeders I was actively involved in formulating the release proposals and defending them at various stages of release. During this period progress has been made with respect to 9 new varieties: 3 varieties ( groundnut: TPG-41, TG-37A, Soybean- TAMS-38) were notified, 1 variety (Mung - greengram TMB-37) was released and 5 varieties (Soybean TAMS 98-21, mustardTPM 1, Sunflower- TAS-82 and groundnut TLG-45 and TGLPS-3) were recommended for release by the ICAR/State system. A few other varieties in greengram, blackgram and cowpea have also advanced to the final stages of evaluation. Our new initiatives have resulted in registration of BARC developed mutant germplasm in groundnut (5) and sunflower (1) for their novel characteristics with the National Bureau of Plant Genetic Resources. Mutation breeding programme for enhancing the oil yield in biodiesel plant Jatropha has been initiated and is showing promise. Another new initiative relates to biochemical approaches to enhance crop yield through efficient translocation of carbon assimilates by increasing the plant reductant pool through arial spray of thiols. In collaboration with Rajasthan Agric Univ this concept has been field tested (with wheat and mustard) and showed >20% yield enhancement in farmers fields. Similar studies are also underway in tackling iron chlorosis and aluminium toxicity in acidic soils in Rajasthan. In recognition of the recent contribution by the Division to Agriculture the WISITEX Foundation, Maharashtra State presented the 2004- Global Institutional Excellence Award – R & D Ratna to BARC. Other Societal initiatives under my leadership include establishing agricultural activities around Nuclear installations, development of seed villages, organizing awareness programmes and farmers rally, coordinating programmes on the large scale production of quality breeder seeds etc. Other research contributions are in the field of 'Enzyme & Microbial Technology'. Areas of research include: Production & downstream processing of enzymes; Enzyme and whole cell immobilization/pelletisation; Agroprocessing, Bioreactors; Bioprocess development, Biosensors, Bioremediation, Food Technology, Food irradiation and Basic biochemistry and Enzymology. Major contributions have been in the field of immobilized biocatalysts. R & D studies have identified and established the utility of several novel supports and techniques for the immobilization/pelletisation of enzymes, cells, cellular organelles, enzyme-cell conjugates and multi enzyme systems.. The current major interest has been in the bioremediation of organic, heavy metal and radionuclide waste through microbial and phytoremediation (plants) and also in the development of Biosensors for environmental pollutants like pesticides, heavy metals and other agrochemicals and also in the monitoring of food nutrients.

New Zealand’s experience in the environment sector New Zealand has been leading the Environment Sector since 2002. During these 3 years, the TSLCC has applied his extensive scientific knowledge (refer to list of publications) to enhance the quality of projects, project proposals and work plans. Being embedded in an environmental research organisation, the National Isotope Centre (NIC) at the Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences (GNS) has an impressive track record in effectively connecting nuclear analytical techniques andenvironmental sciences. The centre operates a 3 MV accelerator used for Ion Beam Analysis (IBA) and PIXE of environmental samples on two independent beam lines: o o General purpose beam line used for broad beam analysis, i.e. air particulate and water particulate matter analysis Microprobe beam line used for individual particle identification and spatial distribution analysis

The centre runs more than 1500 particulate matter samples per year, nationally and internationally, and enjoys close collaborationship with end users that take our nuclear technology to solve their environmental problems. We currently collaborate with many Regional Councils in New Zealand and also provide services as RRU for IBA for RCA member states.

Annex 7 Member State: India Thematic Sector: Industry CURRICULUM VITAE

Name: Academic Qualifications: Current Title of the Post held:

Dr. Gursharan Singh PhD [Physics] Head, Isotope Applications Division, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Trombay, Mumbai – 400 085.

Professional Experience: I joined BARC in 1973 after graduating from the 16th batch (Physics discipline) of BARC Training School. Since then I have been working on developing new techniques using sealed sources and radiotracers for NDT applications, industrial troubleshooting, process optimization and process vessel design modifications, water resources management, environmental control, offering consultancy, conducting training courses for Human Resources Development and carrying out Hot Cell Operations for fabricating high activity Co-60 sources for use in various types of irradiators. My major contributions include;  I have contributed very significantly in propagating radioisotope applications in the country. Today, Industrial Radiography is practiced by over 500 industries who make use of about 1200 equipment. Over 7000 persons have been trained and certified at levels 1,2 & 3, out of which about half are employed overseas, including in countries like USA and Canada. Technology for thickness qualification of thick complex assemblies for use in DAE has been established.  I am responsible for establishing Gamma scanning technology in India. About 190 columns of various types have been scanned in last 7 years. About 30 major Petroleum/Petrochemical and Chemical process industries including Heavy Water Board and Cylone Petroleum Corporation has been benefited by this technology and they use this technology as troubleshooting and process optimization tool on regular basis. About 80, kCi of Co-60 sources are fabricated and supplied to various users in India every year. Techniques for refurbishment of oil-filled glass windows have been established. Applications of radiotracers for troubleshooting, process optimization leak/ blockage location in buried pipelines and residence time distribution for many complex systems and for oil field investigations has benefited the Industries to save huge money. Sediment transport studies in ports and harbors, sewage dispersion and dam leakage investigation contribute immensely to national savings and for environmental protection. The technology has recently been used for the first time in India for examination of Fluidized Catalytic Cracking Unit and a Coal Gasifier Unit.

 



A total of about 370 industrial scale investigations have been carried out. More than 60 end-users and collaborative institutions including academic and professional organizations are established as partner to propagate and use this technology. It is estimated that due to use of these techniques, the national savings are about USD 600 Millions / per year.

SUMMARY OF EXPERIENCE: I am currently Manager, Radiation Protection Services, responsible for operational health physics at ANSTO. I have a staff of 31, fourteen professional health physicists and 17 technical officers. Radiation Protection Services provide Operational Health Physics Services to Research Reactor facilities, Radiopharmaceutical Production Facilities, the National Medical Cyclotron, other accelerator facilities, waste operations facilities and a range of nuclear science and technolgy research and development areas. RPS also provides Radiation Monitoring Services such as external dosimetry service, internal dosimetry service, health physics instrument calibration facilities, stack sampling and ventilation safety services. We also provided radiation protection training and consultancy services and have ISO9001:2000 quality assurance accreditation. I was Deputy Director, ANSTO Training 1 November 1989 - 20 March 1992, in which role I was primarily responsible for Commercial Training and International Training activities. In that role I have created new courses, developed new initiatives and lectured in my specialist area of Health Physics. At that time, ANSTO Training was the training wing of the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation and had three main areas of operation: 1. Staff Development and Training of ANSTO's 850 scientific, technical and support staff. 2. Commercial Training. The provision of Nuclear Science and Technology training courses to Australian industry, higher education institutions and medicine on a commercial basis.

International Training. Coordination of IAEA regional and inter-regional courses in Australia. Coordination of IAEA fellowships in Australia. Coordination of Bilateral Agreements with neighbouring countries (Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Philippines) on Nuclear Science and Technology Assistance Programs.

Prior to that I worked for 6 years as a senior health physicist with the Supervisory and Assessment Branch of the Office of the Supervising Scientist for the Alligator Rivers Region. The OSS is a Statutory Authority under the Commonwealth Department of the Environment and has responsibility for oversight of uranium mining and milling activities in the Northern Territory of Australia. As a senior health physicist I was involved in reviewing and advising on all aspects of radiation safety in uranium mining and milling, as well as practical measurements and input into revised Legislation and Codes of Practice. Before that I was a health physicist for eight years with the Health and Safety Division of the Australian Atomic Energy Commission's Research Establishment at Lucas Heights. There I managed Health and Safety personnel and gained experience in a wide spectrum of health physics activities. Between the AAEC and leaving University I was a high school teacher.
