Changes to Radiation Safety Regulations 2016

Published on 23 June 2023.

Changes to the Radiation Safety Regulations 2016 are scheduled to come into effect from 28 June 2023, with the regulations available shortly after this date.

Amendments to the Regulations include revised safety fees, since an Office of Radiation Safety 2021 review found that fees paid under the Regulations did not fully recover the costs of administering the Act. There are also changes to compliance monitoring categories and a reduction in the scope of activities that veterinarians can perform without having to obtain a use license.

The NZVA provided feedback on the changes on behalf of members in early 2022.
