Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017 published

The long awaited update to the Ionising Radiations Regulations 1999 has now been published.

The Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017 (IRR17) have now been released and can be viewed here:

IRR17 revokes the 1999 version of the Ionising Radiations Regulations. IRR17 sets out a framework to ensure that occupational exposures to ionising radiations are kept as low as is reasonably practicable.

IRR17 transposes the occupational elements of Council Directive 2013/59/EURATOM laying down basic safety standards for protection against the dangers arising from exposure to ionising radiations.

IRR17 comes into force on 1st January 2018.
