Board of Radiation and Isotope Technology in short known as "BRIT" is a unit of the Department of Atomic Energy[1] with its headquarters in Navi Mumbai, India.[2] Board of Radiation & Isotope Technology (BRIT), the unit of Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), is focused on bringing the benefits of the use of radio isotope applications and radiation technology across industry, healthcare, research and agricultural sectors of the society.

Harnessing the spin-offs from the mainstream programmes of DAE, such as R&D programmes at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) and Nuclear Power plants for generating electricity by Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL), BRIT has independently created a separate visible area of contribution to the society. The applications of radiation and radioisotopes in the healthcare, industry, agriculture and research has proved to be one of the most widespread peaceful uses of the nuclear sciences besides the nuclear power production.

Realizing the importance of the use of the radio isotopes for societal benefits and national development, the Department of Atomic Energy has, over the years, built up adequate infrastructure facilities for the production and applications of radioisotopes which is in the form of Board of Radiation & Isotope Technology (BRIT).
