ABOUT ARIS

Advanced Regulatory Information System (ARIS) is a software application developed by the NRSC in the framework of U.S. NRC Radiation Sources Regulatory Partnership program, to assist Regulatory Bodies in managing their regulatory activities connected with registration of sources of ionizing radiation, licensing of the using of sources, as well as for managing inspections at the user sites and accounting of nuclear materials. ARIS promotes a consistent and common approach to the regulatory control of radiation sources while offering the flexibility to respond to the specific needs of a Regulatory Body, with respect to their national legislative frameworks, administrative structures and institutional and regulatory frameworks. As of March 2016, a new version of the ARIS has been released – ARIS v2.2. The version 2.2 comprises the best features of the previous versions of RASODAUTHORIZATION, LICENSEE and INSPECTION modules. The new version enhance the managerial aspects of ARIS and add more convenience for simultaneous working with different modules. The version is accessible at http://aris.am/demo for testing.
