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.
