BIR contributes to joint response to HSE on Ionising Regulations

31 March 2017

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is consulting on changes to the Ionising Radiation Regulations 1999 (IRR1999), the majority of which are brought in by the implementation of the EU Basic Safety Standards Directive (BSSD).

The main changes are dose limit for exposure to the lens of the eye and implementation of the Directive – the Directive introduces a reduction of equivalent dose from 150 mSv to 20 mSv in a year. 

Also the introduction of a new three tiered risk-based system of regulatory control. 

There was a joint RCR, SCoR, IPEM and BIR response to this consultation.
