The Code establishes requirements for adoption by Commonwealth, State and Territory jurisdictions that will provide a system for the safe use of fixed radiation gauges that contain radioactive sources, X-ray tubes or neutron generator tubes.
This Radiation Protection Standard limits the occupational exposure to ultraviolet radiation for artificial sources in the workplace, considered to be a controlled environment and provides guidance on minimising a person's exposure to uncontrollable sources of UVR, such as the sun.
The Code establishes the responsibilities of those involved in dental radiology, and lays down requirements for equipment and siting, image receptors and film processing, and procedures to minimise exposure to ionizing radiation.
The Code establishes requirements for radiation protection in mining and mineral processing industries and for protection of human health and the environment from the effects of radioactive waste from mining and mineral processing.
This Code of Practice is designed to ensure that researchers proposing to expose research participants to ionizing radiation provide the participants and the Human Research Ethics Committees with information that allows consent to be properly considered by the research participants and approval considered by the Human Research Ethics Committee.
The Code of Practice establishes requirements for adoption by Commonwealth, State and Territory jurisdictions that will provide a system for the safe use of portable density/moisture gauges containing radioactive sources.
This publication, the Fundamentals for protection against ionising radiation (2014) provides an understanding of the effects of ionising radiation and associated risks for the health of humans and of the environment.
