Radiation Management Plans

A functional radiation management system revolves around variable factors, but a key element is having high-quality radiation management procedures and documentation in place.

Effective Radiation management plans are a pivotal document. They should be developed to ensure company expectations and regulatory requirements are clearly communicated and met whilst also being clear and concise enough for all radiation workers to understand and implement.

  • Initial development
  • Formal review and implementation of changes

Radsol can assist with determining whether sources – or an aggregate of sources in one location – are classified as ‘security enhanced’ or not and advise on what an appropriate level of security will be.Use and Storage of sources categorised as Security Enhanced (Cat 1, 2 or 3) must be in accordance with an endorsed Source Security Plan and the Transport of these sources must be performed under an endorsed Source Transport Security Plan.

Annual Reporting

Annual reports should document the current radiation management status of your company’s operations, including current inventory (and movements) of radiation sources, operational achievements, events, and incidents in the previous 12 months, and they should detail the findings of your annual audit. Specific requirements for annual reporting vary depending on the type of radiation source you are using.
