The Radiation Act 2005 protects people and the environment from the harmful effects of radiation. A licensing framework regulates the conduct of radiation practices and the use of radiation sources.
Anyone who conducts a radiation practice must hold a management licence (unless exempted from that requirement). The management licence holder must comply with every condition of their licence.
Management licences that authorise the sale of radiation sources include a condition that requires the licence holder to meet the requirements described in Sale of radiation sources – management licence holders obligations.
