Why it matters

Ensuring radiation protection

Our vision is to ensure a safe, sustainable system of radiation protection for people and the environment that also maximises the beneficial uses of radiation.

Radiation safety for the future

We have prepared an issues paper and are seeking feedback. Have a read and tell us what you think.

The NSW Environment Protection Authority (the EPA) is consulting with radiation licensees, key stakeholders and the community to gain a broad perspective on improving the radiation protection regulatory framework.

Your views are highly valued and will be used to inform any subsequent reforms.

We want to get your feedback on:

  • Objectives of the Act

  • Authorising radiation practices

  • Security of radioactive sources

  • Enforcement of the Act

  • Radiation Advisory Council

Have your say

Consultation on the Review of the Radiation Control Act is now open.

Read the Issues Paper and provide your feedback by completing the survey below.

The survey should take you about 20-30 minutes to complete. You are not required to answer every question.

If you would prefer to provide feedback by email, send your written submission to radiation.reform@epa.nsw.gov.au
