IRR17 (34) - Misuse of or interference with sources of ionising radiation

It is an offence to intentionally or recklessly misuse, or without justification interfere with, any radioactive substance or electrical equipment for which IRR17 applies.

Whilst the RPS is not in a ‘policing role’, it is reasonable to suggest that they will be on the lookout for misuse or other similar behaviour.

In radiation protection I spend most of my time explaining to clients what they do not need to worry about.
