The Radiation Protection and Control (Ionising Radiation) Regulations 2000 requires any disposal of radioactive substances to be approved by the Minister. This approval has been delegated to EPA officers.
Hospitals and laboratories that use unsealed radioactive material must submit annual radioactive waste management plans for approval by the EPA. These plans include the quantities of radioactive material used and disposed, and the means of disposal.
Radioactive waste management plans are required as part of conditions on the licence to mine or mill radioactive ores.
The EPA promotes the sustainable management of radioactive waste.
