3.1.1(b) needs modification to "justified by...the referrer" Dental specialists and dentists also refer for 2D & 3D radiology.
3.1.4(d) & (e) has cost implications.
Clarify/define the term "administration" (3.1.23)
3.2.6 is unneccessary.
3.2.9 requires clarification - which standards?
3.2.10(b) are there "acceptable" norms?
3.2.14 is too vague

Sections 3.1.14, 3.3.4 appear to say similar things and perhaps should be consolidated.

Australia has individual licences for every state making it extremely difficult for National Techs working all around country to monitor different expiry dates for each state and pay individual fees that are not cheap. Please formulate a National Radiation Licence for all of Australia.
