Radiation Protection Services

The 2013 European Directive on protection against ionising radiation requires the UK to introduce new ionising radiation and radioactive substances legislation in 2018.

The regulations designed to protect workers and those undergoing medical exposures have already been replaced, and so where relevant employers should now be meeting the requirements of the Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017 and the Ionising Radiations (Medical Exposure) Regulations 2017.

Further changes are also expected later in the year that will lead to the amendment or replacement of the:

  • Environmental Permitting Regulations/Radioactive Substances Act
  • Carriage of Dangerous Goods Regulations
  • Radiation Emergency Preparedness and Public Information Regulations
