1 Basic Safety Standards for Facilities and Activities involving Ionizing Radiation other than in Nuclear Facilities (FANR-REG-24) Version 1 Definitions Article (1) For purposes of this regulation, the following terms shall have the meanings set forth below. Other capitalised terms used but not defined herein shall have the meaning ascribed to them in Article 1 of the Federal Law by Decree No. 6 of 2009 Concerning the Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy (the Law): Absorbed Dose The fundamental dosimetric quantity D, defined as _ d E D dm _ Where d E is the mean energy imparted by ionizing radiation to matter in a volume element and dm is the mass of matter in the volume element. Concentration Clearance Diagnostic Reference Level The radioactivity per unit mass of a material in which the radionuclides are essentially uniformly distributed. Removal of Radioactive Material or radioactive objects within authorised practices from any further Regulatory Control by the Authority. A level used in medical imaging to indicate whether, in routine conditions, the Dose to the patient or the quantity of Radioactive Material administered in a specified radiological procedure is unusually high or low for that procedure. Diagnostic Reference Levels are established following consultation with health competent authorities and relevant professional bodies and are based upon surveys or published values appropriate to the circumstances in the State. Dose Constraint A prospective and source-related restriction on the individual Dose from a Radiation Source, which provides a basic level of protection for the most highly exposed individuals from a Radiation Source, and serves as an upper bound on the Dose

2 in Optimisation of protection for that Radiation Source. For Occupational Exposures, the Dose Constraint is a value of individual Dose used to limit the range of options considered in the process of Optimisation. For Public Exposure, the Dose Constraint is an upper bound on the annual Doses that members of the public should receive from the planned Operation of any controlled Radiation Source. Effective Dose The quantity defined as a summation of the tissue Equivalent Doses, which is each multiplied by the appropriate tissue weighting factor where HT is the Equivalent Dose in tissue T and w is the tissue weighting factor for tissuet. T E E w T. H T T From the definition of Equivalent Dose, it follows that where w R is the radiation weighting factor for radiation R and is the average absorbed Dose in the organ or tissue. E wr.

DT, R When the radiation field is composed of different radiation types with different values of w the Equivalent Dose is: R H T wr. DT, R R Justification Medical Exposure The process of determining whether the conduct or a set of related conducts of a Regulated using Regulated Material is, overall, beneficial; that is, whether the benefits to individuals and to the society from introducing or continuing the conduct or conducts outweigh the resulting harm (including radiation detriment). Exposure incurred by patients for the purpose of medical or dental diagnosis or treatment; by carers and comforters; and by volunteers in a programme of biomedical research involving their exposure

5 Objective and Scope Article (2) 1. This regulation defines requirements that all Licensees must comply with and follow with regard to the conduct, other than in a Nuclear Facility, of any of the following Regulated Activities with the Regulated Material referred to in Article 2(3): a. possession, use, manufacture or handling of any Regulated Material or part of any Regulated Material in the State; b. Storage of any Regulated Material within the State; and c. Disposal of any Regulated Material within the State. 2. Requirements for the Regulated of Transportation of Radiation Sources into or from the State are set out in the Licence Conditions. 3. For the purposes of this regulation, the definition of Regulated Material in Article 1 of the Law is interpreted as follows: a. the Radioactive Material designated by the Authority as being subject to Regulatory Control because of its radioactivity and hence subject to the requirements of this regulation is: Radioactive Material in a moderate amount (no more than one tonne) for which both the total radioactivity of an individual radionuclide present on the premises at any one time and the Concentration exceeds the applicable levels given in Table I -1 of Schedule I; Radioactive Material in a bulk amount for which the Concentration of a given radionuclide of artificial origin exceeds the relevant value given in Table I-2 of Schedule I, and/or the Concentration of any radionuclide in the uranium and thorium decay series exceeds 1 Bq/g or the Concentration of K40 exceeds 10 Bq/g; where there are mixtures of radionuclides, using the levels given in Tables I-1 and I-2, the condition for being subject to Regulatory Control is that the sum of the individual radionuclide activities or Concentrations, as appropriate, is greater than the derived level for the mixture ( X m), determined as follows: X m n 1 f ( i) X ( i i1 ) where f(i) is the fraction of or Concentration, as appropriate, of radionuclide i in the mixture, X(i) is the applicable level for radionuclide i as given in Table I-1 or Table I-2, and n is the number of radionuclides present; b. the sources of Ionizing Radiation designated by the Authority as requiring its direct oversight and hence subject to the requirements of this regulation are those devices

6 that generate Ionizing Radiation intended for application for medical, industrial, veterinary, legal, teaching, research, security, or agricultural purposes, including linear accelerators, cyclotrons, and fixed and mobile radiography equipment. Article (3) 1. The requirements in this regulation apply to Planned Exposure Situations in: a. Facilities that contain Radiation Sources, medical radiation Facilities, veterinary radiation Facilities, Radioactive Waste Management Facilities, installations processing Radioactive Material, irradiation Facilities, and mineral extraction and mineral processing Facilities that involve or could involve exposure to radiation or exposure due to Radioactive Material; and b. individual Radiation Sources, including Radiation Sources within Facilities referred to in (a). 2. The requirements in this regulation apply to Occupational Exposure, Public Exposure or Medical Exposure due to any of the Regulated Activities specified in Article 2(1) above. 3. The application of the requirements of this regulation shall be commensurate with the characteristics of the Regulated and with the magnitude and likelihood of the exposures. Article (4) 1. It is prohibited for any Person to conduct the Regulated Activities referred to in Article 2(1) unless licensed to do so by the Authority. 2. Any Person seeking to undertake the Regulated Activities referred to in Article 2(1) shall apply to the Authority for a Licence and submit detailed evidence of Safety as in accordance with the guidance published by the Authority. 3. In accordance with Article 23 of the Law, a Person seeking to undertake Regulated Activities in a Facility (other than a Nuclear Facility) shall make application to the Authority before, constructing or operating the Facility. Similarly, a Person already operating a Facility shall notify the Authority before shutting down or Decommissioning the Facility. In accordance with Article 1 of the Law, Facilities include... places where Radioactive Material is produced, processed, used, handled, stored, or disposed of, or where radiation generators are installed, on such a scale that consideration of Protection and Safety is required. For the purposes of this regulation such places include locations for radiotherapy, nuclear medicine, industrial irradiation, and predisposal radioactive waste management. The Authority may identify additional such places by notice published in the Gazette. 4. The Licensee shall notify the Authority of its intentions to introduce modifications to the conduct of the Regulated using Regulated Material for which they are licensed, whenever the modifications could have significant implications for Protection and Safety, and are not to carry out any such modification unless specifically authorised by the Authority.

7 Exemption from Regulatory Control Article (5) A Person may seek an Exemption by the Authority from the Regulatory Control of Regulated Material as defined in Article 2(3), including the need to obtain a licence, on the basis of the following criteria: 1. that in all reasonably foreseeable situations, the Effective Dose expected to be incurred by any member of the public due to the exempted Planned Exposure Situation is of the order of 10 microsieverts or less in a year and that for low probability scenarios the Effective Dose does not exceed 1 millisievert (msv) in a year; or 2. Regulatory Control of the Planned Exposure Situation would provide no net benefit, in that no reasonable control measures would achieve a worthwhile return in reduction of individual Doses or risks. Article (6) 1. Licensees may seek Clearance by the Authority on the basis that: a. radiation risks arising from the Radioactive Material requested to be cleared are sufficiently low so as not to warrant Regulatory Control and have no appreciable likelihood of occurrence of scenarios that could lead to a failure to meet the general criterion for clearance; or b. continued Regulatory Control of the material would yield no net benefit in that no reasonable control measures would achieve a worthwhile return in terms of reduction of individual doses or of health risks. 2. The Authority may grant Clearance of Radioactive Material under Article 6(1)(a) without further consideration provided that in all reasonably foreseeable situations the Effective Dose expected to be incurred by any member of the public due to the cleared material is of the order of 10 μsv or less in a year and for low probability scenarios that the Effective Dose expected to be incurred by any member of the public for such low probability scenarios does not exceed 1 msv in a year. 3. The Authority may grant Clearance of Radioactive Material without further consideration provided that: a. The Concentration of an individual radionuclide of artificial origin in solid form does not exceed the relevant level given in Table I-2 of Schedule I; or b. The Concentrations of radionuclides of natural origin do not exceed the relevant level given in Table I-3 of Schedule I; or c. For radionuclides of natural origin in residues that might be recycled into construction materials or the disposal of which is liable to cause the

8 contamination of drinking water supplies, the activity in the residues does not exceed specific values derived so as to meet a dose criterion of the order of 1 msv in a year, which is commensurate with typical doses due to natural background levels of radiation. 4. The Authority may grant Clearance for specific situations (on the basis of the criteria of Article 6(1) or 6(2) above) with account taken of the physical or chemical form of the Radioactive Material and its use or the means of its disposal. Such Clearance levels may be specified in terms of Concentration per unit mass or per unit surface area. 5. For clearance of Radioactive Material containing more than one radionuclide of artificial origin, on the basis of the levels given in Table I-2, the condition for clearance is that the sum of the individual radionuclide activity s is less than the derived Clearance level for the mixture ( X m), determined as follows: X m n 1 f ( i) X ( i i1 ) where f(i) is the fraction of or Concentration, as appropriate, of radionuclide i in the mixture, X(i) is the applicable level for radionuclide i as given in Table I-2, and n is the number of radionuclides present; 6. For Clearance of bulk quantities of material containing a mixture of radionuclides of natural origin and radionuclides of artificial origin, the conditions given in Article 6(3)(b) and Article 6(5) both have to be satisfied. Generic Requirements - Justification Article (7) 1. A Person seeking to undertake the Regulated Activities referred to in Article 2(1) must establish that the practice is justified. 2. With respect to the use of Ionizing Radiation in the imaging of humans for other than medical diagnosis or treatment, the Justification process shall consider: a. appropriateness of the radiation equipment for the proposed use; b. the use of alternative techniques that do not use Ionizing Radiation; c. the benefits and detriments of implementing the procedure; d. the benefits and detriments of not implementing the procedure; e. evaluation of various radiation technologies available, including the effectiveness and limitations of the procedures; f. availability of sufficient resources to safely conduct the imaging procedure during the intended period of use;

9 g. the impact of any legal or ethical issues which may be raised by the use of the technology. 3. Except for justified practices involving Medical Exposures, the following practices that result in an increase, by deliberate addition of Radioactive Material or by activation, in the radioactivity of the associated commodities or products, are deemed to be not justified: a. practices involving food, feed, beverages, cosmetics or any other commodity or product intended for ingestion, inhalation or percutaneous intake by, or application to, a human being; and b. practices involving the frivolous use of radiation or radioactive substances in commodities or products such as toys and personal jewellery or adornments. Optimisation and Dose Limits Article (8) 1. The Licensee shall ensure an optimised level of Protection and Safety for Workers so that the number of people exposed and the magnitude of the individual radiation Doses are as low as reasonably achievable (bearing in mind economic and social factors). 2. The Licensee shall determine a Dose Constraint for exposure of Workers taking into account international good practice in similar Facilities and Activities and shall Optimise protection below that nominated Dose Constraint. Where relevant, the Dose Constraint shall serve as a design target. Article (9) 1. The Licensee shall ensure an optimised level of Protection and Safety for members of the public so that the number of people exposed and the magnitude of the individual radiation Doses are as low as reasonably achievable (bearing in mind economic and social factors). 2. The Licensee shall determine a Dose Constraint for exposure of members of the public taking into account international good practice in similar Facilities and Activities, and shall Optimise protection below that nominated Dose Constraint. Where relevant, the Dose Constraint shall serve as a design target. 3. The public Dose Constraint determined in Article 9(2) shall be subject to the agreement of the Authority. Article (10) 1. The Licensee shall ensure that the normal exposure of Workers does not exceed the Dose limits established in Articles 10(2) and (3) below.

10 2. The limit for the Effective Dose to a Worker who is occupationally exposed is an average of 20 millisieverts per year averaged over a period of five years (100 msv in 5 years), and 50 msv in any one year. 3. The annual Equivalent Dose in the lens of the eye of a Worker shall not exceed 20 msv in a year, averaged over defined periods of 5 years, with no single year exceeding 50 msv, nor shall the annual Equivalent Dose exceed 500 msv at any point on the hands, feet or skin [Note: The equivalent dose limits to the skin apply to the average dose over 1 cm 2 of the most highly irradiated area of the skin]. 4. When a female Worker is occupationally exposed during normal Operation and has announced her pregnancy, the Licensee shall arrange her work so that the Equivalent Dose to the foetus is as low as reasonably achievable and shall not exceed 1 msv for the remainder of the pregnancy. Article (11) 1. The Licensee shall ensure that the normal exposure of the public does not exceed the Dose limits established in Article 11(2) below. 2. The limit for the annual Effective Dose to a member of the public (this includes people working in the Facility other than those categorised as Workers) is 1 msv.
