The Radioactive Substances Act 1968 [Act 17] was the first measure enacted by the Malaysian Government to regulate and control radioactive materials in Malaysia, basically in the medical field. The Act was repealed by the Atomic Energy Licensing Act 1984 [Act 304] to extent the coverage of regulatory functions in view of the advancement in nuclear technology.

Atomic Energy Licensing Board was established on February 1, 1985 as a regulatory body under Section 3 of the Atomic Energy Licensing Act 1984 [Act 304]. The Board was placed under the purview of the Prime Minister's Department (Malay: Jabatan Perdana Menteri).

On October 27, 1990, Atomic Energy Licensing Board was placed under the purview of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovations (MOSTI). However, the licensing authority for medical application of radioactive materials is regulated by the Ministry of Health (MOH).

The main functions of the Atomic Energy Licensing Board are to exercise control and supervision over production, application and use of radioactive and nuclear materials and to advise the Minister and the Government on related matters.

Atomic Energy Licensing Board (AELB) regulates the disposal and management of radioactive waste in Malaysia and enforces the waste management policy through its licensing procedure and conditions of license issued to the licensee.
