Owners of radiation sources

Section 13 of the Radiation Safety Act 2016 requires all persons who manage, control, possess or manufacture radiation sources ('owners') to obtain a source licence unless the Act or regulations provide otherwise.

Owners undergo detailed audits on behalf of the Office of Radiation Safety to determine compliance with the Radiation Safety Act, Radiation Safety Regulations and other regulatory requirements.
