You will be required to comply with this code if you are a chiropractor using ionizing radiation in your procedures or the person responsible for the chiropractic practice.
The code establishes the responsibilities of:
- the responsible person, who may be a natural or legal person, and bears ultimate responsibility
- the chiropractor, who justifies, optimises and authorises the exposure
- the operator, who radiographs the client.
It also outlines radiation protection principles and the establishment of a Radiation Management Plan.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance that may be required.
