Ionising radiation inspections in schools

Where schools use radioactive materials as part of their learning activities, they are required to comply with the Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017 (IRR17) and seek registration from HSE. 


To ensure that the risks to workers and students from radiation are managed effectively, from April 2022 HSE’s radiation team will be carrying out inspections in schools who hold registration for this type of work to review compliance with IRR17.


For further information and guidance on how to manage the risks from ionising radiation, please visit HSE Ionising Radiation web pages.
