ARSAC has updated its notes for guidance on good clinical practice for nuclear medicine in the UK under the Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations.

There is a new requirement under IR(ME)R 2017 for practitioners and employers to hold a licence to administer radioactive substances to people in diagnosis, therapy or research.

There is a fee for employer applications, details of which can be found in the notes for guidance. Practitioner applications are free of charge.

Application and renewal forms for a certificate from (ARSAC) are now available by clicking here.

There is also advice to help practitioners and employers fill in the new licence application forms.

Information relating to the approval process for research studies can be found here
