HSE launches radiation regulation review survey

Radiographers and other stakeholders asked for views

Published: 17 May 2022 Radiation protection

The Ionising Radiation Regulations 2017 are being reviewed and stakeholders across a range of sectors are providing feedback so that the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) can ensure the regulations are meeting industry needs effectively. 

The HSE wants to hear about how the regulations are working via an online survey.

The regulations revoked and replaced the Ionising Radiation Regulations 1999. The introduction of the Ionising Radiation Regulations in 2017 implemented the Basic Safety Standards Directive and brought the UK regime in line with recommendations from the International Commission on Radiological Protection and the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Individual responses are for HSE's internal use and de-identified extracts may be published in the post-implementation review to illustrate stakeholders’ views but no identifiable information will be published or provided to third parties. 

The information you provide will not be used for regulatory inspection purposes and willl be securely stored and deleted upon publication of the final Ionising Radiation Regulations post-implementation review.

HSE will process all personal data collected as part of this consultation in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulations. HSE’s Privacy Policy Statement is available on the HSE website.

Any problems or questions, please contact David Bayliss on [email protected].

The survey will close at the end of the day on 30th May.
