Discussing changes to Radiation Protection Legislation

This Aurora Expert Event “Radiation Protection Legislation – What’s New?” saw regulators and industry leaders providing talks covering the upcoming changes to ionising and non-ionising radiation safety legislation, as well as the regulations covering electromagnetic fields (EMF) safety, which came into force in 2016. Our delegates enjoy being able to speak directly with the regulators, and other varied and interesting speakers, in a friendly atmosphere, with plenty of space and time to network with people with similar roles.

Event Information

More information on the context of the event can be found on the “Radiation Protection Legislation – What’s New?” page, including the nature of the changes to the radiation protection legislation for ionising and non-ionising radiation.

Sharing experiences, networking, and discussing implementation strategies is really important when there are updates to the regulations, as they can be a source of confusion. It was a pleasure to provide a platform of discussion for those who have responsibility for managing both ionising and non-ionising radiation. Angela Yeadon
