Guidance on the scope of and exemptions from the radioactive substances legislation in the UK

This guidance represents an aid to interpretation of the legislation on radioactive substances.



The legislative means by which radioactive substances are regulated in the United Kingdom are different between the various devolved administrations; however, the effects of the legislation are consistent. This guidance sets out the rationale underpinning the exemptions regime, the Government’s intentions for the legislation, and how Government intends the regime to be interpreted and implemented. It provides information to the environmental regulators and users on the means by which the objectives of the exemptions regime should be delivered.
