Summary

This important advice and guidance document will be published as an on-line document to read in the Autumn but meanwhile the advice is posted as a pdf document. The Society and College of Radiographers (SCoR), with the aid of representatives from the profession, produced this guidance booklet pertaining to the Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations 2000 (IR(ME)R 2000) and the Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) (Amendment) Regulations 2006. Radiation protection principles and UK legislation is the responsibility of all professionals working with radiation and this booklet provides information and policy guidance from SCoR which should be of use to all radiographers, radiography students and radiography assistant practitioners (APs). Radiographers with the additional responsibility of Radiation Protection Supervisors (RPS) should, as good practice, be involved in IR(ME)R matters within their local department even though it is not their statutory responsibility.
