The EPA has contacted medical, industrial, research, government, mining and other radiation licensees and stakeholders to inform them of proposed changes to the licensing, registration and accreditation arrangements under the Radiation Protection and Control Act 1982 (RPC Act) and the associated fees to apply in 2012.
The changes include:
- Introducing a new 'licence to possess' a radiation source
- Introducing a new facilities licence
- Differentiating mining phases by replacing the current licence to mine or mill radioactive ores with a new licence for developmental testing mining or mineral processing and a Licence for mining or mineral processing
- Introducing fees for the accreditation of third party service providers
- Increasing the fees applied to the various licences to use radiation sources, and to register radiation sources.
The EPA will be recovering its costs associated with the regulatory and administrative management of the licences and registrations. The proposed fees to be applied in 2012 are based on the true costs of assessing and regulating these licences.
