Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017 (IRR17) Guidance - Part 4 - Designated Areas

Part 4 of this IRR17 guide presents the requirements for designated areas (including specific requirements for controlled areas). Radiation Protection Supervisors (RPS), Local Rules and monitoring of areas is also included. We will particularly deal with a common issue where no designated area is required (e.g. small security x-ray machine at an airport where physical entry to the cabinet it not possible). The regulations imply that local rules and RPS are not required where there is no designated area. We will explain why we strongly advise that local rules and RPS are always present.
