Radiation Protection – new regulations

10:30 - 11:15

The presentation would focus on the recent changes that the introduction of the Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017 and the Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations 2017 have brought and make attendees aware of what they need to do to comply with the new requirements.  We would cover the pitfalls of the new HSE Registration process and how to correct/avoid these.  We would also explain how the existing guidance will be revised - PHE is taking the lead and putting together a working party to revise and publish the conventional Dental Guidance Notes (2001) and the Cone Beam CT Guidance.
