NSW EPA invites ADIA members to provide feedback

Australian Dental Industry Association members are invited to provide feedback into the review of the NSW Radiation Control Act 1990.

The consultation process for the review of NSW’s radiation control legislation is being undertaken by the NSW Environmental Protection Authority (EPA).

Stakeholders have until Monday 20 September 2021 to comment on an issues paper for the consultation.

The NSW Government is reviewing the Act to ensure its objectives 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 Environment Protection Authority (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.

If you would like to discuss the review or have any questions, please contact Mr Mark Carey, EPA Principal Policy Officer on 9995 5737 or email radiation.reform@epa.nsw.gov.au
