Ionising Radiation Regulations 2017 – Post Implementation Review

Closed 30 May 2022

Opened 25 Apr 2022


The Ionising Radiation Regulations 2017 are being reviewed now.

Stakeholders across a range of sectors are providing feedback so that the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) can ensure the regulations are meeting industry needs effectively. These regulations help keep thousands of workers safe from potentially harmful radiation. We want to hear about how the regulations are working for you.

It only takes around 5-12 minutes (depending on options) to provide feedback through this questionnaire and ensure your views are heard.

The regulations revoked and replaced the Ionising Radiation Regulations 1999. The introduction of the Ionising Radiation Regulations in 2017 implemented the Basic Safety Standards Directive and brought the UK regime in line with recommendations from the International Commission on Radiological Protection and the International Atomic Energy Agency.

A brief summary of the main changes introduced in the Ionising Radiation Regulations can be found on the next page.

However no identifiable information will be published or provided to third parties. The information you provide will not be used for regulatory inspection purposes. The data you provide will be securely stored and deleted upon publication of the final Ionising Radiation Regulations post-implementation review. HSE will process all personal data collected as part of this consultation in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulations. HSE’s Privacy Policy Statement is available on the HSE website.
