The requirements of the Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017 (IRR17) / Ionising Radiations Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2017 (IRR(NI)17) are specifically directed at those who work with ionising radiation, including the undertaking of dental radiography. It requires the employer to demonstrate that they are keeping radiation doses as low as is reasonably practicable (ALARP) together with establishing and maintaining a quality management system.
The requirements of the Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations 2017 [IR(ME)R17] / Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations (Northern Ireland) [IR(ME)R(NI)] address the protection of the patient. The radiation dose received by the patient must again be kept ALARP while still achieving a clinical diagnosis. You must be able to show that you have written staff entitlements, written procedures for exposures, an up to date equipment inventory, and be able to show how optimisation of dose is achieved.
DBG will help your practice to demonstrate its commitment to meeting the requirements of current legislation and providing adequate protection from ionising radiation for employees, patients and other persons. We have developed an online file that is easy to use and once completed is stored securely within your own DBG Member's Area. You can also print all areas of the file, if you prefer to keep a hard copy.
