Submissions on this consultation have now closed.
The Act sets out high-level safety and security obligations in section 9–12. There are many different types of radiation use and the requirements are often very technical. The Act therefore authorises the issuing of codes of practice to set out more detailed requirements relating to individual areas of practice. This code relates to all uses of ionising radiation that do not involve medical exposures.
Section 86(2) states ‘before issuing a code of practice, the Director for Radiation Safety must consult any person who the Director reasonably considers is likely to be affected by the proposed code.’ The purpose of this consultation document is to consult as required by section 86(2) and promote discussion. No decisions have been made about the final content.
