Revised requirements for radiological protection: emergency preparedness and response

Closed 15 Nov 2017

Opened 5 Oct 2017


We're consulting on how to transpose the emergency preparedness elements of the Basic Safety Standards Directive 2013 (BSSD 2013).

This consultation is relevant to those working with radiological material, in particular where an emergency as a result of that work might have an impact on the public.

Emergency planners working in local authorities will also have an interest in the topics on which we are consulting.

This is a joint consultation between BEIS, HSE and MOD.

See related consultation, Revised requirements for radiological protection: regulation of public exposures and the justification of practices.
