The Radiation Protection Division ensures that workers, patients, the general public and the environment are protected against the dangers of ionising radiation.
It also assesses and manages health risks connected with the use of ionising radiation or situations that can lead to increased environmental radioactivity. The Section grants licences for and regularly inspects the equipment producing ionising radiation that is used in medicine, industry, research and education. It measures radioactivity in the environment and implements the Radon Action Plan, devises prevention strategies in relation to noise and non-ionising radiation, and assesses their effects on health.
