Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017 (IRR17)

Ionactive summary guidance for the Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017 (IRR17). This resource will be useful for Radiation Protection Supervisors (RPS) and employers, and anyone in the UK planning to work with ionising radiation. It may also be useful to those outside the UK who require a summary of UK radiation protection legislation. Ionactive IRR17 guidance is compatible with the official HSE IRR17 Approved Code of Practice (ACoP) but is written in a more conversational style with plenty of workplace examples and observations and advice.
