Review of the Radiation Control Act 1990

27 Aug 2021 10:14 AM | Matthew (Administrator)

The NSW Government is reviewing the Act to ensure that the objectives of the Act are still valid and the terms of the Act are able to secure those objectives.

The Act regulates radioactive substances and equipment in New South Wales, to ensure that radiation is used, stored and disposed of safely.

The EPA has responsibilities under the Act, including issuing licences to manage or use radioactive substances and equipment, and regulating radiation practices in NSW.

The EPA has developed an Issues Paper as part of the review of the Act, in consultation with the Radiation Advisory Council and NSW government agencies. The Issues Paper will help individuals and organisations to provide submissions on the review of the Act.

Matters addressed in the Issues Paper include:

  • Policy objectives of the Act
  • Authorisation of radiation practices
  • Security of radioactive sources
  • Enforcement provisions
  • Radiation Advisory Council
The Issues Paper can be accessed at https://yoursay.epa.nsw.gov.au/radiation-control-act-review, where you may complete a survey or make a submission.

The consultation is open until 20 September 2021.
