Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission is a scientific research organization and regulatory body of Bangladesh. Its main objective is to promote use of atomic energy for peaceful purposes[1] It was established on 27 February 1973, after the independence of Bangladesh, the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission no longer having jurisdiction.


At first BAEC started its activities at a building for Jute Research Institute. Afterwards it was transferred to Dhaka University campus at 4 Kazi Nazrul Islam Avenue. Before 1988 it was spelled 'Bangladesh Anobik Shakti Kamishon' (Literary Meaning: Bangladesh Molecular Energy Commission) in Bangla, from then it was renamed 'Bangladesh Paramanu Shakti Kamishon' (Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission (BAEC)). In 2006, the headquarter (HQ) of BAEC was shifted to the newly built 'Poromanu Bhaban' building at Agargaon, Shere Bangla Nagar, Dhaka which is next to the science museum in Bangladesh. All the research and development activities of BAEC are conducted under three branches: physical sciences, biological sciences and engineering.
