Radiation management plan
A radiation management plan (RMP) or radiation safety manual is an operational document that details how you will fulfil the requirements of the regulations. Radiation licences and registrations may be required as part of an authorisation application, or specified as a condition of authorisation.
The RMP may be a standalone document or included as part of safe working procedures. It sets out the facility and activities, the nature of radiation sources and risks, the controls to manage those risks, and the measures to achieve compliance with each applicable regulation.
Where applicable, nationally agreed codes and guides published by the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) set out information to be included in a Radiation Safety Management Plan.
