Applying for a licence
Before you acquire any irradiating apparatus or radioactive materials, you must obtain a licence from the EPA’s Office of Radiological Protection, formerly the Radiological Protection Institute of Ireland.
The application and licence fees are set out in S.I. No. 654 of 2007 and based upon criteria determined by the EPA.
|Licence Category||Application Fee (non-refundable)||License Fee (Per annum)|
When applying for a licence, you will be required to address issues such as
- The justification of the proposed practice
- The appointment of a Radiation Protection Adviser (RPA)
- The completion of a radiation risk assessment and a Radiation Safety Procedures document.
We may ask you to supply additional information at any stage during the licensing process.
You must apply for a licence at least one month before the proposed acquisition of any irradiating apparatus or radioactive substance – though it is advisable to apply as early as possible.
A licence will be issued once the EPA Office of Radiological Protection is satisfied with your application.
