Consultation description

In order to transpose the requirements of the European Council Basic Safety Standards Directive (BSSD) (2013/59/EURATOM) which relate to medical exposure to ionising radiation, the Department is proposing to revoke the Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2000 and replace them with new regulations - the Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2018.

The aim of the policy is to update and simplify existing arrangements.  The proposed regulations set out safety standards and requirements for licensing and training of practitioners, licensing of healthcare facilities and recognition of medical physics experts.  The regulations are essentially technical in nature and based on the requirements of the BSSD.
