You will be required to comply with this code if you undertake activities in a controlled facility, with controlled apparatus or with controlled materials. A facility, apparatus or material is controlled if it requires strict operational procedures for safety and use to minimise harm from radiation or radioactive waste.
This code establishes the requirements for radiation protection in mining and mineral processing industries, as well as for the protection of human health and the environment from the effects of radioactive waste occurring through mining and mineral processing. Safety Guide for Monitoring, Assessing and Recording Occupational Radiation Doses in Mining and Mineral Processing (2011) acts as a companion guide for this code and should be read in conjunction.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance that may be required.
